I'm still waiting for mine to emerge in the garden.

16 May, 2019


Now I'm wondering where mine is! Will have to go hunting as I can't remember where it's planted.

Vivid Green and great marking.

It now has a pretty deep pink flower.

Hurrah, I've one leaf showing, there should be a clump, might need to move it, but it was so exuberant last few years. Maybe I'm being impatient seeing yours, but mine is in a shady border.

I only bought this last year and it's been left in this pot and in the greenhouse. That will be why it's a little ahead of yours Sue. I just planted it into a large pot this week with some rooted cuttings I took from my phlox last autumn.

Yes, that's hopefully the answer, but my purple leafed one is up in the border, but in a sunnier position.

I see Homebird you looked up my entry 2015 for Oxalis deppeii, they apparently are one and the same, deppeii is a synonym. It flowered then in the garden on 27 June, so mine is not that late, and has sprouted into its usual clump now. It doesn't become invasive, not for me anyway. I also keep the Oxalis with purple leaves in the border throughout the year, that's slow.
