Hi Justin
The one in flower is Oxalis articulata. What color are the flowers of the one thats not in flower.We class O.articulata as weed here. But i find that it grows well in a pot and yes you can raise ite tuber above ground and it will still do well.
Cheers Kiyel.

> The Oxalis on the left in the picture is that very weedy kind. I dug it up today too. I wanted people to be able to compare them both and would know that these are indeed two different Oxalis. The Oxalis on the right is most attractive and the root structure is most interesting. Looking more like the Michelin tire man. Though with many more legs and arms. lol
> I know very little about Oxalis but I think if the root structure could be exposed, it would make a most beautiful display in a pot. Sort of like a bonsia Oxalis tree. lol
