Saw this at Blunn Creek. It looked like a perfect white clam washed in from an ocean. Funny since we were looking for seashell fossils. Sure hope someone can identify this.

Description

Cannot find the name for the purple variety of oxalis. I would assume it is not edible, unlike the green variety, until better ID is found. This is from the ABC garden at the Green Classroom. It was planted for the "O" plant.

Description

This green oxalis was growing beside the purple oxalis in the ABC garden at the Green Classroom. This is the edible wild plant we call pickleweed, due to its pickle shaped seeds that also taste a bit sour, like a pickle. The leaves are edible and sour as well. Is there a specific name for the green vs. the purple oxalis?
