There are hundreds of species of Oxalis, some of them pests like hell.
It´s the case with a creeping oxalis (O.corniculata), which uses stolons to
spread through lawn. There´s Oxalis debilis, which stores food in bulbs (that
multiply...) and return quickly after the top is removed, and the bulb isn´t.
I have these in my garden, and it took me many years to reduce them to a few
But there are many ornamental ones, like O.floribunda, O.adenophylla and
this O.tetraphylla that are far better-behaving, and can easily be kept in check.
