Most oxalis are tender little darlings, relied on for annual interest or for growing indoors. Inops in hard to zone 5 and equally happy in toasty zone 9, making it a wonderful addition to mixed planters, for use along walkways and as a bright ground cover. A gently spreading oxalis, this is not a garden thug, but can be managed easily and allowed to fill in here and there.
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.
