Oxalis fontana I have never seen. The purple flowered Oxalis I have in my garden and my mother's garden - I have never really identified it but I presume it is the debilis.

Elaeagnus pungens

Was at Ta' Qali National park when was attracted to these shrubs with white fragrant flowers. Searching on Profs Weber's book found these to be Elaeagnus pungens.

Will try to take some cuttings in spring.

was seeing this trend, and read this on Sommier & Caruana Gatto's book. Upper part is the lower piece of Pg295, and the lower part is the upper piece of Pg296.
