A got a small plant of Zinfandel in February.
It has increased at least four-fold in that time.

I've got it in an 8" pot and it is at least 2' wide.
It cascades down beautifully -- constantly dotted with its small yellow flowers.

I should be able to propagate and trade this one.

I've had this plant in my back garden for about a year, and it performs spectacularly with morning sun, even in poor soil. It's a mounding, bushy groundcover that overwinters well (at least here in the Bay Area climate) and spreads rapidly.

The description here notes that this Oxalis is grown for its foliage, but I also enjoy the small yellow flowers it produces in abundance.
