Oxalis regnelii 'Fanny'

A pink flowered form of the species. I am still looking for a location that suits it - I keep it under the bench and then forget to water it in summer, so it looks rather tatty when it should be at its best. Given a new pot and some sunlight it has burst into fresh growth with frightening enthusiasm.
The species comes from South America and is probably best included in O. triangularis. I keep them separated here out of habit and lethargy.
I moved it to a pot in the Agave house, where it tolerates the drought well, though I think it might be more vigorous planted in the border outside.
