freeztar Posted July 16, 2009 Report Share Posted July 16, 2009 woo hoo! :evil: found this sensitive 'ranked' wildflower species right in my veggy garden hiding behind the bush beans. I'm curious. Did you measure the petal lengths? Identification Tips: Oxalis suksdorfii is most closely related toO. stricta, O. dillenii, and O. corniculata. These species can bedistinguished by their petal length and number of peduncles. Thepetals of O. suksdorfii are ½ to ¾ in. (12 to 20 mm) long, and it has 1to 2 flowers. The petals of O. stricta, O. dillenii, and O. corniculata are1/8 to ¼ in. (4 to 9 mm) long, and they have 1 to 7 flowers.http://www1.dnr.wa.gov/nhp/refdesk/fguide/pdf/oxasuk.pdf Cool photo of the pink ladyslipper Cedars! Violets are tricky. Between adunca and odorata, I'd say you are correct Turtle. :rant: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
