Ozarks Spring Wildflowers: Least Bluet

Least Bluet, Houstonia pusillaI must admit that I’m partial to blue flowers and they always catch my eye. Even when they’re so tiny that nobody else ever sees them. And this is the case with the Least Bluet. They grow in full sun and I typically see them on the wet gloppy part of a glade, in between the stones.

About 3/8″ across standing on stems about 2″ in height.
