I must admit I have a bit of reluctance to consider any Oxalis a plant worth to grow, probably because I am so scared from the invasion of several fields, especially olive trees, with Oxalis pes caprae, that is spreading all over the region. I read it doesn't set seed here, so I wonder how it spreads so fast.
But there is another species, which I don't know what it is, with deep pink flowers, which is not invasive and flowers almost all year around, present in many old gardens and even the cemetery here. It has curious tubers which grows the new one on the top on the old one, making a kind of sausage !
