This is a bright pink flower that was in the shape of a ball (it sat overnight before I took pics) It was found growing on what looks like a traveling vine, it has no leaves on the stem, but has small thorns the entire length of the stem. The buds that had not opened were approx. 3in long shaped like a pencil (long cylinder) and bright green. Looking online I found something similar, but the bloom looks a little different. Wondering if it is Emilia coccinea??
this was found along our creek among several dandelions on the high side of the hill, not by the water. There were only 7 blooms/buds on the plant and it was not seen anywhere else in the area.
