Another Unknown

Posted 17th November 2008 | 7 Comments

Another plant that I have no idea what it's name is. The leaves are shamrock-shaped and it grows from teeny tiny bulbs. That's all I can tell you. The leaves will fold up in the heat of the day, so it's very drought-resistant. It multiplies and spreads pretty easily, so makes a nice ground cover not that anything can defeat the inimitable Bermuda grass. It seems to bloom until the frost gets it.

    You know I will never understand how these lovely plants can thrive in a wild situation, yet manage to die when placed in a garden! We miss our beautiful garden in Kent. Most new plants we put in this garden die on us 🙁

    Margaret I thought of you today. I was out on another drive and took a picture of some cows. But at least these are different ones okay?

    Thanks for having my add here today!!

    Beautiful shot by the way. Everything is dying here and it’s hard to find anything. I am thinking of goinmg to a florist in town.

    I wonder if they would mind?

    Happy week:-)))

    Ahh, Babs – I don’t want to compare black thumbs — it’s too depressing 😉

    Shinade — I thought my ears were burning 😛 . I will have to check out your cow pictures! Thanks for advertising! Hope you got some clicks. Sure what florist wouldn’t want free advertising??

    it looks very similar to ground pinks, which are drought resistant plants that grow wildly and bloom profusely every spring time here.

  6. Sureshot commented:

    Ahh it seems this is oxalis tetraphylla or Mexican Wood sorrel. Also known as the good luck plant 🙂

    I’m curious now. Wonder what it’s called.
