Here at Wisley we still grow this lovely Oxalis that used to carry the name
of one of our previous Superintendents, Ken Aslet. The Botany Department
here take the same view that Ron outlined, that the correct name is O.
melanosticta - but I'm not sure what the story behind this is.

On a separate topic, I am lucky to be attending the Interim International
Alpine Plant Conference organised by NARGS in Utah next week. Are any other
PBS members attending? - it would be nice to see you there.
