Plant of the Week: Claytonia virginica

Plant of the Week! Another pretty and fleeting wildflower that you may see right now is Claytonia virginica, Spring Beauty. A woodland flower, it can be found in dry to moist deciduous woods, sparsely wooded bluffs, and even urban situations, such as parks and cemeteries. It is a great choice for underplanting or naturalizing into a lawn. By mid-summer, both the flowers and foliage will have faded. Spring Beauty has its own specialist pollinator, the Spring Beauty Bee, Andrena erigeniae. This ground nesting bee feeds its brood on the pollen of Spring Beauties. To learn more about this bee, check out Bug of the Week!
