Oxalis perdicaria

Dear Uli and All:

I had thought that O. perdicaria was very slow to increase, but when I
tipped out the pots this summer there were a LOT of bulbs.  I repotted into
several pots, but each pot only has a few flowers.  It seems that many of
the bulbs remain dormant, and one could assume that they weren't there
unless you looked.  I think a lot of Oxalis do this, but in most of the pots
I have there are still so many bulbs that bloom and grow each year, it's
easy to overlook the fact that a hefty percentage are sitting the year out.
