Woodland wildflowers get most of the attention in spring, but there are pretty things to find in sunny meadows too, including two-flowered Cynthia (Krigia biflora). Low, sparse rosettes of pale green to gray-green leaves send up slender, 1- to 2-foot stems that branch toward the top, with radial heads of ray florets. From a distance, it looks much like a dandelion (as indicated by its other common name: two-flowered dwarf dandelion) but the color is slightly more on the orange side. Despite the “two-flowered” reference, each plant usually produces several flowers. Here in southeastern PA, it blooms through May into early June.

I don’t know that I’d recommend this for a traditional border, but it’s right at home in a naturalistic setting or wild meadow, providing pollen and nectar for a  variety of bees and butterflies. Full sun to light shade. Perennial. Two-flowered Cynthia is native to much of North America and is reportedly hardy in Zones 4 to 8. These seeds are from wild plants growing in my meadow in Bucks County, PA.

Collected in early June 2023. At least 25 seeds. PA ecotype. Shipping to US addresses only.
