This unique wildflower, whose native habitat include bogs, meadows, and shorelines, blooms from summer to fall! The delicate green veins which run through the white petals are the distinctive feature of this flower. Despite its common name, it does not really resemble a grass; Parnassus refers to the Greek mountain where the ancient naturalist Dioscorides observed similar plants in meadows.
