Plant of the month

The plant of the month for March is Spring Beauty (Claytonia virginica).  In late winter, grass like green leaves begin to emerge from a tuber, which resembles a potato referred to by some as fairy spuds. This spring ephemeral starts blooming in March as a harbinger of spring with fragrant long lasting pinkish white flowers. Spring beauty is a nice addition to woodland gardens, boarders, or anywhere you desire an early bloom.
