Spring Beauty, or Claytonia virginica as it is called botanically, is a perennial wildflower native to the United States from the Rocky Mountains to the Atlantic coastal region.
This plant is named after John Clayton, an 18th-century botanist. Spring Beauty is one of the Portulacaceae or Purslane family and is considered a Spring ephemeral wildflower. The plant will emerge and bloom very early in Spring. Similar to Virginia Blue Bells, your Spring Beauty plant forms colonies, bearing a large, lovely carpet of pink-white flowers for a month. Spring Beauty bears lovely flowers that can be found in the wild yet can also be grown in your woodland garden landscape in natural areas or clustered in beds. A perennial spring flower, these plants are spread by edible tubers that taste like sweet potatoes. When growing Spring Beauty tubers, flowering begins in April and can grow from 3 to 6 inches tall. Spring Beauty will produce small, whitish-pink star-shaped blooms that open in sunny weather and remain closed in cloudy weather. As a delicate wildflower that will dress up your woodland-style garden, Spring Beauty is a terrific choice.
Spring Beauty produces seed early, then goes into dormancy, with no flowers left by mid-summer, until it reemerges next Spring. Spring Beauty prefers to be planted in rich, moist soil. Plant the tubers, or corms in autumn, placing the plants 3 inches apart in deep soil and partial shade for best-growing results. You can plant Spring Beauty in full sun, yet they will require consistent watering.
Plant your Spring Beauty among crocuses and other spring bulbs as a nice component of groundcover. Spring Beauty can take over areas of the ground in optimal conditions, so carefully select where you plant these flowers. Spring Beauty is an important plant for bees since it provides them with one of their early-season nectar sources. For a lovely lush ground cover that will provide years of flowering greenery to your garden landscape, buy Spring Beauty today!
