European perennial herb much like Oxalis oregana, this species is established in a few places in shady coniferous woods on the north shore of Burrard Inlet, Greater Vancouver. It is an understorey dominant in the forests of the Capilano River. Probably originating from garden dumpings. (Lomer 91-54 @ UBC)
