oxalis triangularis purpurea or purpureum.
caught my eye maybe 15 years ago and convinced the gc manager to order stocks in. He too thought it was a lovely plant but didnt know it
it is attractive. Small typical oxalis leaves but purple ...flowers are a delicate pink to white. I think I bought 2, maybe 3.
It does seed and pop up in places around the garden despite being planted for only a few months.
Tender? It is difficult for me to be objective because plants do survive down here that prob don't elsewhere but I think it is hardy enough.
Similarly I grew a euphorbia....purple leaves again and attractive but it behaves the same way...spreads by seed. I will have to look this one up
