I live in a mild climate, thought one year, well, if it is sold in the nurseries, it can't be that much of a thug. I am very glad I put it in a container, because, boy! did that oxalis multiply!! No idea which one it was, it was very pretty, pink if I recall rightly. Have stuck to the -no oxalis- ever since. It is a thug in any colour to my mind. But then nurseries don't seem to care what they sell, as long as it sells. But then that is another gripe.
