Hailing from Chile and Argentina you'd expect this oxalis to be tender and unable to handle cold. Not the case. These little beauties are hardy to -25 degree Fahrenheit (cold!) and are also happy in heat. Worth growing for the silvery foliage alone, these oxalis sports crenulated leaves, framing small pale pink to lilac flowers.
While the name might lead you elsewhere, don't confuse these with the common wood sorrel that can be invasive in many regions. In Europe, wood sorrel is oxalis acetosella. In the U.S. common wood sorrel is Oxalis montana. Neither have the silvery leaves of this plant.
