Gardeners' Notes:

Charming perennial which has proven to be surprisingly drought tolerant after becoming established. Probably best suited to afternoon shade in hot summer gardens. Easily wilts on hot sunny afternoons here, but recovers quickly after sunset. Has not become a dense mound like other Oxalis species.

A lovely little filler plant that comes up and flowers when the soil is warm (late may in PA). Flowers all summer with flowers held well above the foliage. I grew it in part shade between Heuchera and Carex. It was killed in a true zone 6 winter for us, but had survived in the past.
