Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I decided that today would be a good day to post a photo of my lucky shamrock, aka oxalis, plant. Fortunately, it is in bloom! I've been raising oxalis for years and years and they are some of my favorite plants. I've tried several different varieties and they all have performed very well for me, with lots of flowers. Being a bulb, they prefer to be on the dry side, but as long as you remember that, they will be happy to flower frequently for you.

Have you ever grown an oxalis plant? Which variety?
