Miss Jennie T., Shoemakertown, Pa. This plant, as well as its pretty ally O. multiflora, is easily raised by cuttings of the roots. Both are truly ever-blooming plants, and do well as basket plants, as well as for mere window growth. They have no common names that we know of, but generally go among flower lovers as pink oxalis and white oxalis. Though there are numbers of pink and white oxalises known to botanists, you would probably get the above from florists if ordered as pink and white oxalises, should the use of the botanical names be thought too learned.
