Spring Beauty: Claytonia caroliniana
There is a correction in the scientific name of the pictured Spring Beauty in today’s previous post: it is Claytonia caroliniana, not C. virginica. Both species are found in the Northeast and their flowers are similar, but their leaves are not. C. virginica‘s leaves are narrower and more grass-like than C. caroliniana‘s, and do not have petioles (which C. caroliniana‘s leaves do). Thank you, Sue Elliott!
