Oxalis photos on the WIKI

Dear all,

I would like to than Robin and Diana for their interest in the Oxalis, the 
photo of which I recently put onto the WIKI.  I'd particularly like to 
thank Robin for his reference to Barbara Jeppe's book, as his reference 
does fit my plant reasonably well, apart from the 12cms tall (nearly five 
inches, whereas mine at most is two).

However, I looked up the plant in Salter and the description is a 
reasonable fit, including the purple reverse to the leaves.  I also noted 
that on the opposite page there is another, related species described which 
is named O. ioeides - perhaps the origin of the (incorrect) name that I had 
with the plant, O. oreoides.  What's more, that plant is also similar in 
some ways.

I think that its now time to wait for the flowering season to finish, so 
that I can examine the bulbs at my leisure.  I'll let you know what I find.

Once again, my thanks.

Best regards,
David Victor
