windowbox woodsorrel, Oxalis rubra

Can't you just see this growing in your window box? A beautiful pink array through the season? And then when it's over you clean it out, dump it in the woods, and we've got a new wild flower? Maybe it's not all bad that you don't have a window box? Window box woodsorrel is a perennial from a woody base, and once established will stick around for a long time. But only in the south. If you're up here where things freeze, grow it without care. You might see it wild in AL, AR, CA, FL, GA, LA, MS, NC, OK, SC, TX, and VA. Okeechobee Co FL, 3/21/16. Woodsorrel family, Oxalidaceae.
