Weed or Not?

This one is called Oxalis purpurea Garnet. I got it from a friend many years ago. I love the compliment of burgundy foliage and pink flowers. 

It's a bulb that comes up in the cool weather and blooms. Then it dies back when it gets hot. It originates from South Africa(as many of my favorite plants do). 

This is what it looked like this morning at 7:30AM when it was 37º.  Brr.  But Oxalis just shakes it off. 

Do you grow the desirable Oxalis or the weedy Oxalis?  I grow both unfortunately. 

Happy Gardening!
