Oxalis violacea

Violet Wood Sorrel is a native perennial which can be found in much of the Eastern United States. It’s a low-lying and delicate plant. They favor woodland, streambank and moist prairie habitats. Leaves are grayish-green and divided into 3 leaflets. Flowers are violet to pink and are visited by small native bee species. Foliage hosts the Wedgling Moth, which feeds exclusively on Oxalis spp. Seeds are sought after by gamebirds and granivorous songbirds.
