Found these in the Greenbrier area of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The Dwarf Crested Iris ( Iris cristata) is a real eye catcher anywhere you find them. While the Star Chickweed (Stellaria pubera) was a wonderful complement to them. So often we get in to big a rush, to get where we are going, to really take in the small beauties of the forest floor.
Chickweed is a good diuretic that want deplete the body of minerals. It also can be used as a poultice to soothe irritated skin… The dwarf iris was used as a blood purifier, for dropsy, and as a laxative
