Q.Will An Oxalis Triangularis Bulb Produce New Shoots In Same Season?

Zone 30096 | Anonymous added on April 22, 2021 | Answered

I bought and planted some clusters of already-growing dark purple shamrocks (oxalis triangularis) in mid-March The deer decided to sample them this week and pulled them out by their shoots. They apparently did not like them, though, as they were all lying there — presumably spit out. I’m pretty sure the bulb(s) are still in the ground. Will those bulbs produce new shoots this season, or will I have to wait until next spring to (hopefully) get foliage from them again? The picture shows the one cluster they didn’t touch and the three clusters that were pulled out. I replanted the shoots on the off-chance they might root themselves but they look pretty pitiful. Thank you!

If the corms are still there, they will send up new shoots.
