Gardening Gone Wild - April Photo Contest

The Gardening Gone Wild photo contest theme for this month is "Green".


This is an image of Oxalis Oregana, commonly known as Redwood Sorrell, taken at the Leach Botanical Garden in Portland, OR. I was so inspired by the copious amounts of oxalis they have, which carpets large swaths of ground, that I have decided to do something similar in my own garden...but it's slow going!

  1. I just secured some starts of this lovely native, after marveling how it created a cool green carpet in my neighbor's understory. And hopefully, it's bossy enough to bowl over any weeds in its path. Nice photo.
