  I assume you are asking about double-flowered Oxalis (more than a single
row of petals).

  Although certainly not common in the genus Oxalis, I have three double
flowered selections in my collection:
       Oxalis magellanica 'Nelson' (very small, but fully double flowers)
       Oxalis compressa (a large, double flower form is uncommon)
       Oxalis pes-caprae var. flore plena? (a large, fully double flowered

  Although I do not have any, Oxalis cathara also certainly exists as a
double-flowered form.  I suspect there are a few other selections as well.
