Neutral melody On Feb 17, 2005, melody from Benton, KY (Zone 7a) wrote:

A tiny plant with a basal rosette of leaves and several slender, leafless stems, each tipped with one tiny white flower or a round, flat, green pod.

Found in open grasslands or sagebrush, common where it is moist early in the saason. From eastern WA south to northern CA, NV and southern ID.
