One of the first flowers to bloom early Spring is aptly named Spring Beauty.  If you're a forager, you also know that the tubers (root balls/ corms) are nicknamed fairy spuds. 

This little wildflower is important for pollinators just emerging from their dormant season, and as depicted, forest rodents enjoy the fairy spuds as well. Perhaps I should have included a fairy in this painting?

These are like tiny potatoes with some sweetness, and many describe a chestnut flavor. You can eat all parts of Spring Beauty, raw or cooked. It's been noted, however, that raw tubers could cause irritation to the throat. Native tribes made a poultice - a mashed moist mass applied to the skin on agitated areas - for eye issues, urinary tract problems, sore throats, dandruff, convulsions, and contraception.

I'll add one more definition for you, since this is just the beginning of this plant fact sharing journey. Spring Beauties are ephemeral, meaning they have a notably short blooming period each year.
