There are just a few genera where we find that our customers think 'weed'. It is often justified and it has to be admitted that Oxalis does contain some noxious weeds, but it is also a great error to write them all off as there is the chance that in dismissing the bulk, you will miss the few good ones.
We do not grow many Oxalis but those that we do grow are exceptional and we recommend them to you. The rest you can get in your local garden centre!
The genus grows across the whole northern hemisphere and most of the southern. It is tremendously variable. We have a native British woodland species - O. acetosella, but there are Andean alpine cushion plants and tiny S. African gems, wet-growing species, desert growing types, one grown as an edible crop and even a six foot high, shrubby one; O. gigantea from Chile.
