Note: Claytonia megarhiza has adapted well to my cultivated rock garden. I received it as an offset from a local friend about 10 years ago. It's located in a north-facing rock wall that has rich, naturally-moist soil and sun in the morning and afternoon only in June and part of July. It blooms in late May in this location.
