Oxalis barrelieri remains as weeds

Much has been said about Oxalis barrelieri on its medicinal benefits,  but it remains as weeds, growing freely as it likes.. Since my lawn is regularly mowed, it cant appear in the center of things.  True to its wild traits,Oxalis barrelieri emerge at awkward places where lawnmower would not  venture; flower pots, edges of lawn, near drains, underneath trees.  

The berries taste exactly like starfruits (belimbing),  therefore it is widely known as belimbing tanah or belimbing pasir in Malaysia.
