Wood Sorrel (Oxalis montana)

The leaves are heart shaped, clover like; like shamrocks. The flowers, each on their own individual stalk, are 3" to 4" high. The flowers are 5-petaled, white or pink, veined with deeper pink. Less common, is the yellow sorrel (stricta). They bloom from June through to July and are to be found on the floor of the cool woods. The wood sorrel is to be distinguished from the spring beauty
