I can see why it's a favorite. Showy white flowers on a stalk, beautiful!

I love these little wildflowers. Such a delicate bloom. And the name describes them perfectly.

It is beautiful!
I shall see if it is native to my area as I think I would love to have it growing in my Moon Garden.
I am coming to Pella, Iowa, on the 8th for the Tulip Festival. Looking forward to seeing Iowa in May!

They're so cute. I've thought about trying some of them in my garden. Do they have a long bloom time?

Thanks for stopping by one and all!

Dragon, they have a very short bloom time, two weeks tops and the plant is barely noticeable the rest of the year.

this is on my most wanted plants list. i'd like to plant it in between some of my summer bloomers. i don't mind the short bloom time especially when the blooms are so pretty.
