Wild Ginger aka Asarum canadense is not related to the Ginger you buy in the store. I'm hoping to test a bit of it this spring. I read that the Indians and settlers used it for flavoring. And though it has a toxic principle in it, you would eat so little of it at a time that it is inconsequential. It has a single very short stem that splits into two leaf stems and at that bifurcation a short flower stem sets. The flower is quite dark in color and sitting so close to the ground that you may well miss it if you don't go looking for it.

Virginia Spring Beauty aka Claytonia Virginia is a rather small delicate spring ephemeral. The leaves are quite narrow.

Mitrewort or Bishops Cap aka Mitella diphylla is another spring ephemeral. When I first found it, I was unable to ID it a while. The flowers are quite small and the pictures in Audubon Wildflower guide were enlarged so that I didn't recognize it a fair bit. The shape of the flower reminded people of the Cap a Bishop wears also called a Mitre. Thus the names.

This one, as many flowers, has a bunch of common names. I have never seen this one, and youth it's on my list of want to see. One of the earliest bloomers. The state flower of South Dakota. Once I read that it likes sandy prairie type habitat, I knew why I'd never seen it here in my heavy clay soils. I've tried looking for it in parks along the Mississippi River north of St Cloud to no avail. If you find some, enjoy the beauty of these little flowers.

Keep an eye open for these nice little early blooming flowers. Hepatica americana aka liverwort, it is said will many times have their leaves green all winter. I can't say that I've noticed that, but they are quite early. There may be species. There seems be disagreement as whether Rounded Lobed Hepatica and Sharp Lobed Hepatica aka Hepatica acutely a are varieties of one species or separate species. I, have only seen the Rounded Lobed Hepatica, so far. Though I like know as much as I can about the wildflowers, my many focus has been enjoying their beauty and trying keep them around.

This one is not very common, at least not in my area. I remember studying about it years ago, but only saw it for the first time a few years ago. Though Dutchman's Britches is it's common name it's scientific name is Dicentra cucilaria. Those "britches" might remind you of Bleeding Heart, and that isn't hard to believe since they are related. Though they are listed as toxic, there are not enough in my area to be of a great concern.

All of those common names have been used to refer to this flower Erythronium albidum. Which highlights the problem with common names. These little guys are only around 2-4 inches high. They do tend to occur in huge numbers and in patches. Some information suggests some anti-cancer properti s and then some say it is a carcinogen. I just like them partly because they are in early spring and sometimes it feels like late winter. If it gets too they only bloom for a couple days, otherwise a week or so.

This one is supposed be Drooping Trillium aka Trillium flexipes. The differences between this one and the one yesterday is about as clear as mud it seems. They talk about if the blossom is above the leaves it's more likely be Nodding Trillium aka Trillium cerium, but if the blossom is below the leaves it's probably Drooping Trillium. And they add that the relative length of flower parts make it be more likely this one or that one. So, I end up coming the conclusion that there are 2 Trilliums that are both pretty and very similar and maybe I don't need be able differentiate enjoy ther beauty. Enjoy.

As I mentioned there are multiple Trilliums. The reason for the name Nodding as you can see is that the flower is not completely upright as in the Trillium grandeflorium, but the stem of the blossom starts in the same place but the blossom hangs over or nods.
