Oxalis drummondii - Drummond's Woodsorrel

Oxalis drummondii – Drummond’s Woodsorrel

This modest little flower is a native volunteer that just showed up in the yard this year. It has the distinctive leaves of a woodsorrel, but which one I didn’t know until I looked it up at http://www.wildflower.org/plants/result.php?id_plant=OXDR. That’s one of the pleasures of having a wildscape garden – the diversity of plant life that just “happens” from year to year. The photo above was chosen because it happens to include the leaves at the bottom of the photo, which aids in identification (although in this picture, not so much).

A slightly more aesthetically pleasing photo, but without the leaves, appears here:
