Hi everyone and welcome back to another week of wildflowers! Today’s flower is the “Canada anemone”. These plants grow up to 2 feet (60cm) tall with a whorl of 3 stalkless leaves at the top of the stem, and from there comes the long flower stalk with one to three flowers. There are 5 white petal-like sepals about 1 to 1.5 inches (2.5 to 3.75cm) across. They grow in part shade to sunny locations in fields and along shores of lakes and rivers. They bloom from May to July. They are found right across Canada and most of the northern half of the US from Montana to Colorado to the east coast. It is a native wildflower. I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
