Spring Beauty

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.
