Description:

This Oxalis 'appeared' in my garden, where it grows on a south facing, rather dry bank.It is native to Paraguay.
According to the Flora of the Isle of Wight it was first recorded on rubbish dumps in 1960, but is now a frequent garden escape.Unlike other Oxalis I have not found it too invasive.
