I love that colour and very different from the Oxalis that
seeds everywhere. Good luck with your search Meanie!

Meanie:

It has nice interesting flowers. Wouldn't want one, though. They become extremely invasive weeds here.

Great link SL!

Too tender to become invasive here Delonix!

The stolons couldn't take the cold and the wet.

REALLY?! I though they were super hardy to cold and wet conditions.

Zone 7'ish for this one..............

8 Oct, 2012

 

Aren't you in zone 8a?

9 Oct, 2012

 

Felt more like 10 the last two winters Delonix!!!! Trouble is the wet that we endure over the winter though.

Meanie:

I'm sure it did...especially when it was snowing! LOL!

I'm in zone 11...so if you're in Zone 10 you can grow almost all the plants I grow. :>)

9 Oct, 2012

 

Should have gone the other way - DOH!!!

9 Oct, 2012

 

Yes, Zone 1 is the coldest and Zone 12 is tropical.
