Acceptable Oxalis

Dear all,
It is very hard to overcome the prejudice against Oxalis. I offer about 15
species and forms and try to be very careful not to offer species which can
spread dangerously. On the blacklist are O pes carpea, caprina. Oxalis
obtusa (which came of M vassar's collection (via Mary Sue) about 8 years
ago, can spread quickly (as Jane said) but is controllable. Making uniform
one colour collection of O obtusa  strains is a very time consuming and
tedious job!  I recommend the smaller species as excellent pot plant, which
give colour to the garden from November till  early April.
 Kind greetings
