Spring Beauty (Claytonia virginica)
In bloom March 26 - May 22.
This small (2-10 inch tall) delicate plant sometimes grows in
great clusters in the natural area. It can be recognized by its
two leaves at the base of the stem and its beautiful white or
light pink flowers with 5 petals. Usually there are pink veins
that are darker than the rest of the petal. This is one of the
prettiest flowers to be seen in the spring along the trails.
