Tall Thimbleweed

Anemone virginiana


2' tall plant with dense, thimble-like spikes (.5-2" long). These spikes are called achenes. Once these have ripened, they will begin turning wooly--and eventually seed will be capable of being dispersed via wind.


Edges of dirt road clearing near thick mixed hardwood forest.
