Wood Anemone

20 05 2011

The perennial Wood Anemone (Anemone quinquefolia) flowers in spring and summer and is from the Ranunculaceae family. Quinquefolia, from the Latin quinque, means “five,” and references the five petals of the flower. It is also called Mayflower, Windflower and Nightcaps. It does well in rich, moist soil in woodland and shade gardens. Photographed in the Woodland Garden at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens

That’s pretty! I love your header. That’s beautiful, too.
I am big fan of wildflowers. (At least the ones that don’t have bristles or thorns ;))
