Harbinger of Spring

Harbinger of Spring (Erigenia bulbosa)

In bloom March 17 - April 21. As you walk the trails this is the first blooming herb you are likely to see in the early spring. It is a very small upright plant with 2-4 highly dissected leaves. Many tiny white flowers occur near the top of the plant. These flowers first appear before the leaves unfurl.
