I went to a edible weed workshop and this was one of the weed we ate - not the bulbs just leaves

Recall there's ornamental varieties too.

They look so pretty Christa, I love Oxalis flowers, it's a pity ore people don't share our views. on them.

Not sure how edible the bulbils are but there will be dozens of them if you pull up the plant. Is Oca a member of the same family? Oca is so delicious and so darned hard to grow here, I've had one crop and that's all. Oxalis is a pretty plant and like all weeds, doing a good job of keeping the ground covered and the microbes fed.
