Oxalis megarhiza

22nd May 2007

It is a pretty little thing. I got it as Oxalis tuberosa, which I have grown before for its edible tubers, but it didn't prosper, so I was quite surprised when this did so well. It now transpires that this is Oxalis megarhiza, and it has the potential to become an awful weedy menace among the succulents. I have removed about a hundred from other pots, but I am going to have to do it again in the spring if I am to get rid of the unwanted.

I keep weeding it out, it keeps finding a way back again. One day we will have enougfh truly awful winters to destroy it completely, and I will miss it (for a short time).
