Daily Awesome - Oxalis lutea

THE BULBOUS SOUTH AFRICAN OXALIS CAN BE VERY IMPRESSIVE, CHECK OUT THIS POT OF OXALIS LUTEA.


It's almost as if these bulbs knew that I was bored with them, and, as usual, I left them outside to freeze, but at the very last minute, I get a soft spot and bring them into the greenhouse. This pot of Oxalis lutea, I admit, is a favorite while it is in bloom. I divided the bulbs this year, and tossed many out, since although not invasive like many Oxalis, this one does produce lots of bulbs. I accidentally spilled a pot of dry bulbs into a soil mix, and now they are coming up in other pots, which, I rather like. As if I have tiny pots each with a 'bit of meadow', well, more like if you took a meadow in South African, Chile and Spain, and mixed it all up! ( Oxalis, xxx and Narcissus species all growing together). Sloppy gardening sometimes works.
