A beautiful, delicate spring ephemeral with an incredibly unique tiny white flower. The genus of this species, “Mitella,” comes from the word miter (a bishop’s cap), due to the shape of the mature seed capsules. With a  fringed, snowflake-like blossom lasting about one month (from mid-spring to early summer), this wildflower is a fantastic addition to your wood edge garden! Once established, it is easy to grow and maintain. Prefers organic, well-draining medium moisture soils, in partial shade.
