Siberian Miner's Lettuce
Claytonia sibirica

As far as I can tell, this is siberian miner's-lettuce. I have tended to associate pink flowers with siberian miner's-lettuce but it is said to also have white flowers. I was a little surprised at how drastically different the coloring is. (I figured the white type would have a pinkish tinge.)

Location: Lincoln Street Beach, Sitka, Alaska
