Oxalis crassipes?

That is another one all together. It spreads but usually not as intensely as
O. debilis. I have seen it listed as ***Oxalis
*recently but I son't really know much about the taxonomy of these species.
It seems to be much more spreading and invasive were limestone is abundant
near the surface or other lime sources like concrete foundations or
oystershell, etc... It gets the same rust too but not nearly as badly and
usually just before it goes dormant for me anyway. I really enjoy that one
whether Oxalis crassipes, O. articulata, or other name. It is the only
Oxalis I have commonly encountered growing in the southeast U.S. that has
fuzzy leaves which helps identify it. As aside, I have seen white flowered
forms of Oxalis debilis as well, though only very rarely.
