Harbinger of Spring Erigenia bulbosa

So tiny that you can scarcely see it poking up from the forest floor, the harbinger of spring begins the wildflower season as early as late January. The plant has tiny, white florets with a sprinkling of red-brown anthers. The combination gives rise to its other common name, "pepper and salt." Look for it in rich, ungrazed forests near streams.
