How to Grow
Mar, Apr, May
Herb/Forb, Native Plant, Perennial, Wildflower
1/2 inch to 3/4 inch flowers in various colors, most are 5-petaled with 4 petals being swept upright or fan-like and one acting as a guide for pollinators. The shape of the petals vary. Most bloom in spring.
During the summer cleistogamous flowers without petals produce seeds which are thrown by mechanical ejection from three-parted seed capsules. Fruit capsules are produced that split open by way of three valves.
