Erigenia bulbosa, or harbinger of spring, is native to most of the eastern half of the United States. As its name suggests, it is one of the very first flowers to bloom in the spring. By early summer, it disappears and is no longer visible above the ground. It grows in deciduous woods and lightly wooded slopes.
In our yard, this grows in the Woodland Area.
