Dear Uli,
 This description fits in exactly with what I call here O crassipus.  It has
been in flower September-Octobre  but his main season is March-April.  It
has no bulbs but rather "knobly" rootstocks. A very good garden plant here
and not at all weedy.
Have a look at the pictures in the Oxalis section in our website . Let me know please if I got the name wrong.

The Oxalis in flowr here:
. O masoniorum, flava, hirta (sp and Gothemburg) ,
Kind regards
