I'll have to look out for triangularis if it has dark leaves as interesting foliage is always as addition to any plant. Good luck with finding out what your unknown Oxalis is. You'll have to talk to it nicely to get it to flower to help you identify it. ;) Cheers. Paul Tyerman Canberra, Australia. USDA equivalent - Zone 8/9 mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org Growing....
