Wood Sorrel

Anonymous added on May 28, 2015 | Answered

Is there any reason I can't use the wood sorrel (five-petal yellow flowers) as a ground cover in my garden? If I simply leave it alone in the garden, will I regret it?

I think you might regret it. Oxalis corniculata L. is not a plant you can simply leave alone in the garden because it is very invasive and difficult to remove once it takes hold. You won't be able to contain it just to the borders of your garden. For more information, please visit the following link:
