A lovely flower growing in a wooded area beside my driveway. The petals are a creamy white. There is only this one, no others growing. from the web - Anemone virginiana L. Tall thimbleweed, Thimbleweed, Tall anemone Ranunculaceae (Buttercup Family) USDA Symbol: ANVI3 from: http://www.wildflower.org/gallery/result...
This specimen is growing in my very shade-filled wooded yard. It has been blooming the last three years, but not before that. The area is filled with other vines, Virginia Creeper, poison ivy and another dark-leafed ivy that is everywhere. There is a dogwood, wild cherry, mulberry, oak and maple close by.
This plant has been blooming in this location the last three or four years.
