Oxalis Purpurea Alba

These first two images in the archive have waited patiently for a post.




Frosty dew is gorgeous, but I had hoped to pass on a little more info. It took awhile (weeks) before the plant and I were finally camera-ready. I caught the blooms open yesterday– they have a way of closing when the light is a tad off.

When not much else is blooming, clumps of this lovely plant are downright majestic. And I almost welcome its appearance anywhere in the garden. It does have that famous oxalis ability to regenerate freely, however it's the sort of plant no gardener should be without, and I'd dig up a clump for you if you happened by. The leaf-span is 2.25-inches.

Note the imposter leaf in the grid (second image)-- it's much smaller and belomgs to the more humble Oxalis crassipes or white wood sorrel.




For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.
