What’s Wrong with My Oxalis?

My Oxalis—see picture below—seems to be sick. In many ways, the plant seems fine, but the leaflets have developed white spots. Can anyone suggest what the problem might be and what I should do about it?

  1. Try contacting the Allegheny County Coop Extension- Master Gardners

  2. Mine look exactly the same. I bring them in the house for the winter, then replant outside in spring. On one side of my garden they are fine, but the other side appears to have a serious problem.

    1. Let me know if you figure out what makes for the difference.
