Claytonia lanceolata (Spring Beauty)

The earliest photo I have taken of this beautiful plant is April 4. Formerly in Portulaceae, this plant is now in Montiaceae, and is no longer "rosea," but "lanceolata." This decision was made on the basis of the leaves being sessile (no stems)) rther than petiolate (having stems).



Here you can see that the leaves are without stems.



An uncommon color!
