This tough woodland wildflower blooms early (Feb.-April). The stalks push through last years’ foliage to bear 6-10 delicate petals that vary from white to bluish to pink. The yellow stamens form a dome over the petals. After the petals drop the 3-lobed, thick leaves appear. The common name of Liverleaf comes from the liver-like shape of them. The leaves persist throughout winter.
