A plant this diminutive just can't be this sassy but what a show! Finely cut green leaves in a dense mound and showy flowers of vivid blue merging with striations into the purple center. A class act on trough or rock garden. Good drainage and a gritty soil.
This little bulbous jewel from South America takes a back seat to no bulb. A bantamweight in size but this flowers at a weight class much higher. A perfect bun of green foliage with lots of flowers whose pale pink chases dark feathers down to the white center. Gritty and drainage. Trough or rock garden.
Oxalis griffithii is an uncommon woodland clumper from Japan with single white flowers typically. Rarely can you find the double white form which is quite choice. Scarcer than hen's teeth is the double flowered pink form which marks you as a collecter of the highest caliber. This is one of those botanical treasures where feeling smug is justified.
Nearly perfect little ground cover with tiny evergreen shamrock leaves and single white flowers sprinkled about for several weeks. Densely growing but not competitive - bulbs can grow up through it and it can grow around and under other plants. Lovely among stepping stones or edging a path. Easy to maintain and a testament to beauty in simplicity.
Sweet little groundcover whose double white flowers resemble fluffy bits of white popcorn strewn on the leaves. Perfect underplanting for other shade plants to pop up through and great between stepping stones. Gently spreading and not hard to keep in bounds. Darnn near perfect.
