Jump to navigation Jump to search
Dewdrop is a plant that grows in the forests and stays low to the ground. The flowers are white with five petals. From the center of the flower spring several thread-like objects call stamens (stay-mins). The leaves are shaped like hearts with scalloped edges. Because of this, they are often confused with violets which also have heart-shaped leaves. But once the flowers open, this plant looks nothing like a violet.
