African Wood Sorrel

African Wood Sorrel (Oxalis pes-caprae) also known as Cape sorrel, Bermuda buttercup, is a species of tristylous flowering plant in the wood sorrel family Oxalidaceae. It is also know as sourgrass or soursob due to its pleasant sour flavor. Some time ago, I used to cultivate this plant as an ornamental plant in my home.
