Common Name: Twinleaf Family: Berberidaceae (The Barberry Family)

Jeffersonia diphylla
Zoom In Photo:

A delightful clump-forming, eastern North American native plant with delicate stems holding aloft two-lobed leaves. The flowers are white and cup-shaped. They do not last for long but they are charming when they flower and the clump of foliage provides a neat mound afterwards. Perfect for a woodland setting.
