The largest flower I have is O. purpurea 'Pink Giant' with flowers about 
4cm across.  I also have several large flowered O. obtusa, O. obtusa 
Blush and O. obtusa Damask Rose are about 3.5cm.  In my collection O. 
hirta Gothenburg is only about average sized comparing it to other species.

> Thanks to a donation to the BX by Mary Sue Ittner last year, I obtained a large bulb of Oxalis hirta 'Gothenburg'. It's been blooming here for about two weeks, and I really like this one. It suggests a low, eight or nine inch shrub, and the flowers are very nice. At first glance it suggests a low, bushy, pink- flowered Linum shrub.
> The flowers are larger than those of other oxalides I know: does any other species have a larger flower?
