Purple Shamrock. (Oxalis triangularis)

That is a nice clump, attention seeking. Mine started as a clump, but now there are small bits of it here and there, which are not so eye catching.

I have this too, Sheila, but thought it was Oxalis! I will be digging it up before the first frosts and keeping it in the greenhouse . . .

That's nice...a very unusual colour. I have the usual Oxalis in the garden.

Homebird, I have kept my purple Oxalis outside in the border for the last xx years. I must shift the corms accidentally whilst weeding around, because there are odd bits here and there. Maybe I should dig up and pot a bit, it does increase well inside I believe.

Just put 3 corms in a pot, they were a long way down in the soil.

Aghhhh,I spent good money on one years ago...it has sporadic growth. I have been told in the UK it can be a great grower. Must need constant moisture.
