Claytonia caroliniana
Overview
The stem of this plant has a single pair of leaves which are basically oval in shape but taper to a point. The blade (flat part) of the leaf and the petiole (stalk of the leaf) are distinct from one another. The leaf veins are hard to see. The white flowers have 5 pink-veined petals, and the stamens have white filaments with pink anthers.

Identification
The wide leaves best distinguish this plant from Claytonia virginica which has very thin leaves, shaped like blades of grass.
