Another Oxalis Bloom

Oxalis herrerae

Gee, I wonder what PBS has to say about this plant? Well lets go take a look:

Oxalis herrerae is a species from Peru. It can grow up to 3 feet (1 meter) and can tolerate a wide range of soil conditions from full sun to part shade. In lush soils with good watering, it will retain it’s leaves and will drop them to reveal a succulent when water is withheld. The most interesting thing about this species is the swollen petioles which gets rather fat in full sun and spindly with less sun. Flowering spike carry numerous 1″ yellow flowers which is most prolific in spring and summer. It can be cut back hard in the spring for a tamed appearance. Propagation is easy by stem cutting. This is a fun one to have for anyone who likes arborescent Oxalis.

Well, yeah, that does seem right.
