My son bought home a bulb from school and we have re-potted it , but we have no idea what it is !! I was wondering if anyone could shed any light onto what it is , we were told it should grow to about 25cm and the flower but ours have grown beyond that and not flowered !!
Many Thanks

Hi becki1983,

If temperatures permit, you might want to set it outside. It doesn't look like it is thriving inside so it will likely not flower as it is.

You might update your member profile and put your location (United Kingdom) in the one box provided for the Garden Zone. See, I am zone 5/6 S INDIANA
By putting the info in your profile, it will automatically be shown whenever you make a post, asking or answering questions. Just follow the Member Pages link found at the bottom of any GW page.



Here is a link that might be useful: Iron Cross Oxalis
