There are reported to be a couple of aquatic or semi-aquatic
Oxalis from South Africa.

Salter refers to:

Ox. dregei - a marsh plant
Ox. disticha (from shallow clayey seasonal pools)
Ox. simplex - a marsh plant (this is supposedly in cultivation - AJB)
   "... carpeting the surface of the water..."
Ox. natans - a water plant (in stagnant pools)
Ox. uliginosa - marsh plant (not floating)
