Oxalis versicolor

The pictures will hardly do these tiny unfurling flower justice. This Oxalis versicolor just opening up in the Warm Temperate Pavilion at Brooklyn Botanic is daintiness personified, as my mom might say. Candy cane oxalis. Just in time for the season. I'm glad I wandered into this pavilion when picking up my last paycheck yesterday.

Hi, Karen. I'm in the process of applying for a BBG horticulture internship, and I wanted to ask you a few questions about your experience. I couldn't find another way to contact you, so would you mind emailing me at williamjfoster [at] gmail? Thanks!
