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.
