Claytonia virginica

Common name: Spring Beauty

Native plant

Sping beauty is a small plant with delicate flowers.  Dispite its size, this plant forms colonies under the right conditions and puts on quite a show in the spring!   For best results, plant in areas of dappled sunlight with large amounts of organic matter and slightly drier soil conditions. Once finished blooming, both the flowers and the dark green, lance shaped leaves fade away.
