Oxalis obtusa

Oxalis obtusa

This is kind of a rare bulb that was blooming in the Alpine House at Wave Hill. I am pretty sure that this is an immature specimen but the species can be quite variable. The flowers are a unique blend of peach and yellow. It looked to me to be able to glow under the proper lighting. Looking back on some of the posts on Oxalis on this site I found some diminutive but beautiful flowers.

I am happy to report our power came back on. I missed being able to do this blog. The new Long Island garden got devastated and it will be a long time cleaning up and restoring its glory.
