Spring beauty

A spring wildflower I saw today:

The botanical name is Claytonia virginica. Pretty, but tricky to photograph, it’s hard to find a good group of them for an image. Lots in bloom today, Mertensia virginica, Wood poppy (Stylophorum diphyllum), no white or painted trillium yet.

  1. Very pretty. I agree it’s hard trying to find a group of flowers, especially the small kind, that are “photogenic.”
    Have a good week. 🙂

  2. The newsletter of the Arkansas native plant society’s called The Claytonia. I saw Steve’s mention that Austin is the SW corner of its range, so it’s easy to imagine its range stretching from your area, across Arkansas, to Austin.
