  1. A legitimate question, when looking at your second capture. I love flowers most though:)

    1. I should have included more photos of the foliage. It really is striking, colorful, and ever-changing. I'm sure I'll do more posts about this plant in the future. :)

    1. I like everything about this plant. I'm glad I brought some inside to overwinter!

  4. Both are worthy of attention in their own right but together they make the plant a stunner!

    1. Yes, indeed. I'm relatively new to this particular cultivar (I think it was introduced a few years ago). I do enjoy all Oxalis species and cultivars, but this one really has my fancy right now.

    1. Yes, I so agree. I'm so glad I brought a pot full of it in to cheer up the sunroom. And then it will be happy outdoors again next May. :)

    1. Thank you. Yes, it's a beautiful plant, and it seems to be adjusting well to moving indoors for the winter. Yay!

    1. Everything about this plant is nifty, including the downy fluff on the stems and foliage. It's adjusting well to winter indoor life, too. :)

  10. The leaves are vivid, but then the flower has matching details - so it's a tie.

    1. Happy December, Dee! Great plant for outdoor pots and indoor displays, alike. :)

  12. I vote the flowers as the winner since yellow flowers are one of my favorite colors, next to bright red, or maybe pale purple, no, pink, perhaps white evening blooms are my favorite. I can't make up my mind but I am sure the flowers win.
