Spring Beauty

This flower has small whitish flowers with pink striping atop a 2-4 inch tall, slender, plant with pointed drooping, narrow leaves. It blooms in spring, and is often missed as it gets lost amongst the foliage. It can bloom in large groups, but is more often found singly or in very small groupings.
