Flowers of the Eastern Cape #4 - Oxalis Polyphylla

This weeks selection of still flowering plants are from the oxalis family, a perennial that grows all along the coast from here to the Cape Peninsular.


They range in colour from rose to lilac and white, with a satin sheen to their petals.

It's such a pretty wildflower. Is it tiny. We have an oxalis that has yellow blossoms.
