Oxalis corniculata   Procumbent Yellow-sorrel

Oxalis corniculata

There are two species of Oxalis to be found in Cyprus. One is the very common Mediterranean plant: Oxalis pes-caprae (Bermuda Buttercup) which is so common in some places it could be described as a weed and this small plant with dark leaves and explosive seed pods which definitely is a pernicious weed if you get it in your garden in the UK. It is not believed to be a native of the Mediterranean but is found throughout the region.
