Cee Neuner’s challenge Flower of the Day FOTD January 9
(Click on the link to be a part)
Many of the species are known as ‘wood sorrels’ and others are known as ‘yellow sorrels’ or ‘pink sorrels’ based on the colour of their flowers.
The plants are either perennial or annual.
They can also propagate vegetatively by means of small bulbils which are easily visible if we dig up a little.
They are edible and have been used for consumption since a long time.
They are known to contain Oxalic acid which gives them their name and their sour taste.
Excess consumption of Oxalis may be harmful as Oxalic acid is considered slightly toxic to humans in large quantities.
Thank you for visiting.
