While checking the plants growing in the protected cold frame today, I
noticed that Oxalis purpurea 'Garnet' has jumped the fence and is now coming
up outside the cold frame. Initially it was grown in a pot; but it did not
flower freely there, so I set it free in the soil which forms the bed of the
cold frame.  

It will be interesting to see to what extent cold and summer wet limit its

This plant has so-far proven to be a shy bloomer here, although the few
flowers it has produced have been gorgeous.
