If you want information on the "MV" Oxalis listed in my contribution to the
BX, those are South African selections collected by the late Michael Vassar
of the Huntington Botanical Garden. You can see a list with details on all
his selections here:


Many of the corms were already starting to sprout their little thready
shoots when I sent them to Dell, so you should pot and water them
immediately when you receive them. Plant the sprouts horizontally, spreading
them across the surface of the soil, and then covering with about half an
inch of soil.

If you're new to the list, I should tell you that most Oxalis are not the
weeds that many people think they are. Most of the South African species are
easy to grow, stay in one place, and make colorful flowers for a long period
in fall to early winter.

Have fun!
