Oxalis grayi (Rose) Kunth
Oxalis decaphylla has pink or violet flowers, similar to Oxalis violacea. However, rather than having three lobes to the leaf, it has 8 to 10 cleft lobes. The lobes are much narrower than those of Oxalis violacea or Oxalis alpina. Oxalis decaphylla is an upper elevation herb.
