Bulbs of Southern Africa
Oxalis P - Z
Oxalis is an enormous genus, with the majority coming from South America and South Africa.  Only a few
South American species are included in this list, and are noted as such.  Oxalis are wonderful "collector's
items"  --  you know you have been bitten by the bug when, upon seeing their dazzling jewel-like flowers
and different leaf forms, you experience an irrepressible urge to possess more!  The South African species
are largely winter-growers, brightening the dreary months with their exuberant flowers, then go dormant in
summer.  They are best appreciated as container plants, and need sun to open their flowers.
