Brought into property about 20 years ago as a pass-a-long plant from a native roadside area maintained by the Canfield's, my neighbors about 0.2 mile south down county road.
An invasive plant. Popular with kids, who chew it for its sour flavour.

The Oxalidaceae, or wood sorrel family, are a small family of eight genera of herbaceous plants, shrubs and small trees, with the great majority of the 900 species in the genus Oxalis (wood sorrels). Members of this family typically have divided leaves, the leaflets showing "sleep movements", spreading open in light and closing in darkness.
