152/365, a photo by credd on Flickr.

oxalis tetraphylla.

aka iron cross or luck clover.
another plant in my bulb bowl.

there are also some flowers in that pot...
and when i looked up the oxalis tetraphylla...
i saw that the flowers are a part of this plant.
i didn't know that.
i thought they were two separate plants.

i also found out that the leaves and flowers are both edible.
not that i plan to eat either of them...
but according to wikipedia...
they taste like lemon.

too much can be harmful...
as it interferes with the absorption of calcium.
