    This looks like Oxalis adenophylla, which I saw at UBCBG in April. I made a note that it has the property of being obdiplostemonous, a property of species of Oxalis meaning “there are twice as many stamens as petals, and they are arranged in two rings with the outer ones opposite the petals.” I got that from the PBotD at Oxalis adenophylla.

    I thought about the same Oxalis adenophylla, but this one much smaller. Leaves are so beautifully cut.

    Look at the size of these at UBCBG compared to the label and the stones. Your Utah ones are smaller than that?
