Oxalis Buds on the Rise

Pin It

I have this little clump of oxalis, or Wood Sorrel, that grows just under the wisteria off the path to the greenhouse. It all but disappears during the fall and early winter, then emerges with the rain and almost immediately begins to put out buds.  As it turns brown and raggedy before disappearing entirely in the fall, I often wonder if it will come back again.  So far, I have always been rewarded.

It is a fun plant. I think it may be some type of bulb.
