Could someone tell me what this plant is called. The pink flowers only open when the sun is on them. The leaves are club shaped. It grows from a rhyzome type root, and spreads from bits transplanted round the garden.



Oxalis, not sure what variety

I didn't know oxalis came in blue - I thought it was always yellow? I'd quite like a blue one :-)

What makes you think it comes in blue, Cestina? And the commonest colour for these is in fact pink through to white.

Ah, on my computer it looks very blue......or possibly mauve. Certainly doesn't look pink lol

That's kind Homebird but we aren't in the same country I fear.....

They come in every colour but pure blue. They range from purple to red (including red and white in O. versicolor) to orange and yellow. It all depends on the species.
