A. A. Reznicek
first year rosette
This is the commonest cultivated species, another Eurasian native escaped extensively in dry or moist ground, especially along trails and roads through forests (even spreading into the forests); neglected lawns, shores, dumps, and other ± disturbed sites in sandy, rocky, or rich soils. First collected in 1912 on Mackinac Island, Mackinac Co.
A variable species, this one is frequently white-flowered and occasionally pink-flowered. Rarely (especially with white- or pink-flowered plants) the corolla may be a little smaller than usual (± 4 mm broad).
