Claytonia's Range
Wed, 08 Apr 2009 22:21:44 PDT
Claytonia is very easy to grow. It seems to like moist clay or a thin  
humus layer above clay in little grassy clearings.  I've personally  
seen the narrow leafed species growing in both Memphis, Tenn. and  
Jackson, Miss. and it also thrives in Terre Haute, Indiana. Right now,  
it's busy turning an entire field white with its flowers in TH's  
Deming Park.

I have snitched it in the past by simply getting a shovelful of it  
from someone's yard and then setting it out where it is to grow.
I have heard the Springbeauty also called "Fairy Spuds" on account of  
their little tubers.
