Planting a garden from scratch, plant by plant. Very impulse driven. Aiming for year round flowers in support of wildlife and pollinators!

Look what’s appeared to say hello overnight! Teeny tiny #oxalis flowers. Not sure what I was expecting but somehow the flowers and the leaves don’t look like they belong to the same plant 🤔

@ublaszko not seen the iron cross one? 🤔 I have one self seeded, this one I plant corms for and then one I planted the plants for - the one that had the rust!

I only have the iron cross one as I keep it in a pot. I read comments on GT that oxalis can be a bit too eager to spread and are difficult to get rid off. I really like the one with yellow flowers and brown leaves but it's supposed to be the worst culprit for invading everywhere.

A surprise after the rain! I now want to master the art of growing a plant upside down and back to front 😂 how gorgeous is this colour on the underside of my oxalis leaf? It is so low growing, I’d never have known it had this amazing colour on the underside if it wasn’t for the torrential rain battering the plants! #Rain #Oxalis #Leaf #Foliage

Does anyone know the specific variety of Oxalis? I originally wanted burgundy leaves, but couldn’t get any, so purchased some lime green Oxalis corns (apparently) which have come up burgundy. Cataloguing some of these in the garden anyway.
