Oxalis "Lucky Gold"

Got seeds of this to sow last year, and forgot to do so. Meant to represent the golden tickets in our chocolate Factory theme, but I reckon that pirates would like this, too.

Yes, lives up to its variety name, methinks. Glad I found that seed packet. :-)

David:

That's funny you plant these...and we try desperately to get rid of them. They are horrible weeds here. : > ) The yellow and pink flowered ones are the worst.

Reminds me, Delonix, of questions you see asking "Is this a weed or a garden plant?" Answer depends on where you are, whether you want it, or not. I did know that Oxalis is a real pest in some places, and that many originate in Mexico and neighbouring regions. Lucky for me, then, that, here, these yellow ones are sold as annual seeds, as won't survive winter. :-))

You're very lucky they die in winter! Winter is when they grow like crazy everywhere in CA.
