The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady first alerted me to the fact that there are different types of wood sorrel than the dainty yellow Oxalis stricta we feasted on as kids.

The wood sorrel captured by Edith Holden is white with pink stripes—Oxalis acetosella. Yesterday, I was delighted to find Oxalis purpurea yesterday while hiking in NE Tennessee. Zoom in for a closer look at the purple-pink rosette.

What types of wood sorrel are in your neck of the woods?
