Claytonia virginica

Spring Beauty, Puslane

Named for pioneer American botanist John Clayton, this fleshy, low-growing perennial can sometimes be difficult. Several varieties are mountain natives and, especially in the case of Claytonia megarrhiza, strongly prefer alpine environments. Spring-blooming Claytonia virginica and Claytonia caroliniana are good for rock and woodland gardens and other lightly shaded places, especially where there is lots of rich soil. Propagate by seed in autumn. Watch for aphids.
