Leavenworthia uniflora

This is the time of year to be searching for the rosettes of the uncommon Leavenworthia uniflora. Look for the tiny plants growing in shallow, calcareous soil in Southern Ohio. Photo taken on February 18, 2011 in Adams County, Ohio.

Plants should begin blooming within the next few weeks. This is a typical full sized plant. Photo taken April 5, 2010 in Adams County, Ohio.

When growing conditions are perfect, you may find robust specimens such as this. This plant has more than a dozen flower buds clustered in the center of the whorl. Photo taken on March 25, 2010 in Adams County, Ohio.


  1. I'll be down in the area next weekend. Looking forward to searching out this and the other rare mustards!

  2. Andrew, I hope you were successful in your search.
