More flower IDs

I'm sure any gardener with any experience knows what these are but I can't find them in my one and only book. I actually pulled some of these thinking they were weeds earlier in the season:( I also pull the clover pretty constantly. It just comes back the next day and it is low on my weeding priority lol. Anyway I'm thinking these are different varieties of the same plant.

Re: More flower IDs

Ah! I thought it was familiar. I feel a little bit like a newb fool but at least I'm happy to have it in my garden. I hope I didn't pull out too much so it keeps coming back.

They need space, because they will spread a well (not too much)
Very nice ground cover, come out each spring and bloom long time.
Very thankful plant. Keep it. ;)

Well I guess I'm not the only one who thought it was a weed. I had someone mow the lawn today- as a one time thing and he went and did bed maintenance without me knowing. He weeded all the oxalis. I see one little broken down stem.

Re: More flower IDs

there are varieties of oxalis that are rightly considered weeds...but i'd agree, that wasn't one. it'll probably come back.

Re: More flower IDs

Bulb-type Oxalis are usually well-behaved. People buy this one in stores, when lucky enough to find.

Re: More flower IDs

Yes, they have bulbs and some are very resistant on cold temperatures.
My variety survive -15Celsius ( 5 F) without problem.
