Hi Chad.
Found this while i was Looking up Oxalis Rubra, seems that there was a white 
form  in New Zealand i . Might just have to do plant hunting.  

Transactions and Proceedings of the Royal Society of New Zealand 1868-1961

Oxalis rubra A. St. Hil. First recorded by Allan (1940, p. 285), but the 
distribution is not given. Has been found as an established garden escape; 
Tauranga, M. Hodgkins! Onehunga, H. Carse! Feilding; Palmerston North, V. D. 
Zotov! Paekakariki, V. D. Zotov! Wellington City and suburbs, H. H. Allan! 
Riwaka; Nelson; Christchurch. A white-flowered form has been collected at 
Wellington, R. Mason! This appears to be that cited as establishing in 
California (Rose, in Leaflets of Western Botany, vol. i, no. 6, 1933, p. 51), 
but Knuth (1930, p. 203) makes no mention of such white-flowered forms.

In New Zealand
