Is Oxalis good for the garden?
Oxalis is actually an excellent plant for bees and butterflies. When blooming, it provides “copious nectar.” In fact, it generously gives away its nectar. Since it doesn't set seed, it doesn't benefit from pollinators – but it's a food source for honey bees, bumblebees and butterflies.
