Oxalis storage organs

This page is devoted to the storage organs of some of the Oxalis species pictured on the PBS wiki. The table below includes photos of various species. Some have bulbs, some rhizomes, some tubers, and some tap roots. In many of these photos the storage organs are placed on a 1 cm grid to give you a sense of their size. They vary greatly in size and form. There are differences even in forms of the same species so sometimes there is more than one photo of a species to demonstrate the difference. Information about these plants can be viewed by clicking on the name in the table. That will take you to the wiki page that has information and photos of that species. By holding the shift or control key down and clicking on the thumbnail that image in the table can be enlarged and then if you hold your mouse over the top left or right side of the photo an arrow will appear that will allow you to view the photos in the table in sequence.
