Notes:

These plants come up each year. I like them but do not know what they are. Invasive or just nice plants? I want to get more of them to make flower beds around the oak tree.

    The top pic looks like the hardy begonia.

    the bottom is the purple oxalis (purple shamrock)

    Both would do beautifully in that bed(and spread) if you added some humus and a thick mulch.

    Dig up the purple oxalis and you’ll see many small white tubers. Break these apart and replant to propagate. I have mine in a large border around one of my flower beds.
