Windowbox Wood Sorrel
Oxalis rubra

Windowbox Wood Sorrel, Oxalis rubra The windowbox wood sorrel is the species of Oxalis most commonly grown, presumably in window boxes.  In my yard, like so many "weeds", it first appeared directly under the utility wires.  One might expect that birds were involved.







Windowbox Wood Sorrel, Oxalis rubra Notice the leaves have three heart shaped leaflets that fold in the center, just like other species of Oxalis, including the shamrock.









Windowbox Wood Sorrel, Oxalis rubra Almost all of the Oxalis rubra in my garden develops this yellow fungus growth on the bottoms of its leaves.









Windowbox Wood Sorrel, Oxalis rubra The leaf and flower stalks come directly from this bulb.  The plant has no stem.
