Claytonia sibirica (Siberian Spring Beauty, Siberian Miner's Lettuce, or Candy Flower) is a flowering plant in the family Portulacaceae, native to Siberia and western North America. A synonym is Montia sibirica. The plant was introduced into the United Kingdom by the 18th century where it has become very widespread.

An example of the variation found in Claytonia sibirica is the subspecies known as the Stewarton Flower, so named due to its local abundance in that part of Scotland and recorded as such by the Kilmarnock Glenfield Ramblers.

In 1915 it was stated to have been in the area for over 60 years and was abundant on the Corsehill Burn. As the plant is very adept at reproducing by asexual plantlets, this has maintained the white varieties gene pool around Stewarton. The pink variety has not been able to predominate here, and only occurs occasionally, unlike most other localities in Scotland.
