There are only nine species and they are native to North America.  They certainly are a treasure to find and they tend to occur in isolated clumps.  Even though they are fragile there is no harm in picking them since they have a vigorous root system that makes them a hearty perennial.  See this photo: Callirhoe-involucrata-BKU3

I love these little treasures!  I have noticed a lot of intra-specific color variation but I've never seen a white one -- lucky you!!! :) (Smile)   I was surprised to learn there are only nine species, all NA natives with one critically endangered.  This one is common though and as part of the botany course I took it was required to include the root system with the vegetative part of the plant.  Well, for such a dainty thing, that was one tough job I'll never forget.  Here's a picture of it: Callirhoe-involucrata-BKU3
