Plant Description

Spring Beauty is a common wildflower in rich woods throughout eastern North America. We see it blanketing acres and acres of good, damp woods. In our area, it even becomes established in average-to-damp sunny lawns. The small, white, 5-petaled, pink-striped flowers seem to come from nowhere in early to mid spring as the linear leaves are easily lost among the forest leaves or lawn grasses. A single corm (root stock) may have dozens of flowers that wave cheerfully in the cool spring breezes. And as soon as they're here, they're gone. Spring ephemerals, they die back and go dormant soon after flowering. When happy, they will colonize large areas over time. Hope to be so lucky!
