Oxalis latifolia, an invasive weed introduced from Central America

Oxalis latifolia is a species of flowering plant in the woodsorrel family known by the common names garden pink-sorrel[1] and broadleaf woodsorrel.[2] It is native to Mexico and parts of Central and South America.

Description

This is a perennial herb growing from a system of small bulbs and spreading via stolons. There is no stem. The leaves arise on long petioles from ground level, each made up of three widely heart-shaped leaflets about 4.5 centimeters wide. The inflorescence is an array of several flowers, each with five pink petals.

Invasive species

It is known on most other continents as an introduced species and a noxious weed and invasive species, as it infests many types of agricultural crops.
