oxalis corniculata root
Oxalis develop deep taproots, which makes hand-weed difficult.

Stolons and rhizomes are not part of the root system, but instead are considered modified stems.  Nonetheless, it is appropriate to discuss them along with the root system.  O. corniculata is stoloniferous while O. stricta is rhizomatous.
