They are back.....😒 Yes, they are beautiful. No, I do not want them everywhere. I dug up hundreds of these, but not all. 💣 #invasive #oxalis-stricta #woodsorrel #yellow #sourgrass #southerncalifornia 14 November 2019
So much for having removed all of this #invasive #Oxalis stricta from my succulent bed. It does look beautiful and the #bees love it, but 🤯. #oxalis-stricta #southerncalifornia #california #yellow 17 February 2019
That is a lot of salad, Laura! When I was a child we had a different variety that we also used to chew for the sour. 😁 My son planted these to "feed the deer"; plant them and they will come. @columbiariver @purplebird
@lovestogarden & Laura I looked in my wild flower field guide and the kind I use to eat that was sour was O. stricta & O. european very similar, difference only direction of the stalks of the pods. 1st 1 has horizontal or downward bent pod stalks and the 2nd 1 erect or ascending pod stalks. Both yellow blooms. There are 2 other yellow ones but I haven't seen them in the yard since I started IDing wildflowers. (Not weeds, just growing where you don't want them) 🤗
So, when my oldest was very young, he brought home some 'deer food' to grow. Well, after about 15 years, this sour grass, a.k.a. Oxalis pes-caprae has spread all over my front yard (and still no deer). Anyone know how to rid a garden of this?
