    • Absolutely my favorite to add carefree color for a shady yard. Blooms beautifully and is evergreen here near Atlanta. Even in winter a warm spell will bring out a few blooms.

    • I think almost all the plants in th Oxalis family are very unusual/ I have been growing them for a number of years.

    • This plant fell from the 2nd floor porch of my mother in law's house more than 50 years ago and it comes back every year! It fell right into a corner and its roots are partially under the porch so it is somewhat protected. We are in zone 5.
