Set Them Free?

The purple Oxalis Triangularis has been spending the winter in a sunny window in the warm garage.  It does not look very happy.

 

Out in the wooded area where I had the pots of Oxalis summering under the sprinkler, some of the plants escaped the pots and are happily growing and multiplying.  Maybe it is time to set the potted Oxalis free to live in the wild.

    Edwins Oxalis gets so bad every winter. He had to cut back all the leaves because they die. On Sun, Feb 24, 2019 at 6:35 PM Automatic Gardening & Real Gluten Free Food wrote:

    Like you, I think because the winter was so mild in many areas, it would be no harm to leave the plant outside like you show in your photos and talk about. I love this purple oxalis and mean to purchase one again soon. The pink oxalis is already in bloom in the garden!
