Product Description

Virginia Spring Beauty - Claytonia virginica

If you are looking for a great flower for your garden, the Virginia Spring beauty, Claytonia virginica, may be the plant for you. It is a beautiful white flower with darkish pink stripes. Many of these flowers are clustered into a loose bunch. This can be a great way to fill up a gap or other space in your garden that some flowers would not be able to fit in. The Spring beauty is an attractive spring perennial that can quickly grow in large patches if you want it to be the center point of a garden.
In its natural habitat, this spring perennial grows in huge patches underground. The root of this flower was even eaten during colonial times. It was essential for the survival of colonialists during harsh winters where other food was scarce. It is recommended to grow this flower in partly shady places. Rich soils that are usually moist are also ideal growing areas for these flowers. However, the Virginia Spring beauty is a flower that can tolerate growing in most varieties of soil. If you want to improve your local bee population, the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation has listed this flower as one that creates significant value for native bees.

To propagate the Virginia Spring Beauty, you will use corms or seeds.

Once the seeds ripen, you need to make sure you sow them right away. These seeds will usually mature early in the summer. At most nurseries, you will be able to find the seeds or corms you need to grow this flower. If you are looking to cover a hill, accent a walkway, or add some color and coverage to your garden, the Virginia Spring beauty might be the plant for you. Head down to your nearest nursery to get more information about this flower and to see if there might be a Virginia Spring beauty in bloom for you to see for yourself.

Virginia Spring Beauty is hardy in USDA zones 4-9.


The Virginia Spring Beauty is shipped bare root.

    These will be shipped in the fall, but I expect that they will arrive in perfect condition like my other orders.

    Spring Beauties

    May 15, 2023 Reviewer: Katherine S

    It’s very hard to review this item because it is just tiny bulbs that I hope will produce the flowers I remember from my childhood. So I have high hopes for these, which include the hope that chipmunks and/or voles don’t eat them before they come up next spring.

    The 10 spring beauty bulbs arrived promptly and seem to be in great condition with new white roots. I can't wait to get them planted.

    Received a stone by mistake

    Sep 30, 2022 Reviewer: K

    Ordered 8 spring beauty corms and received one stone by mistake. When I contacted Native Wildflowers they refunded me the price of the one corm. Can't comment on the quality of what I received and planted - hopefully they will come up in the spring.
