Wildflower ID Help Requested

(Note: Since posting this early this morning, my friend Ana has sent me some links that tend to indicate this is a “White Wind Flower”, or Anemone caroliniana. Looking at some more images, I agree with Ana … thanks, Ana!)

Today’s post features an unidentified white wildflower I found at Prairie State Park in southwest Missouri last May. It was growing on a prairie, not far from the road, in some heavy grasses:

Unidentified white wildflower

If you look closely, you will see that the backside seems to be purple in color. This is a beautiful wildflower and I’m hoping someone out there can help me identify it. And I’m hoping to find more of them at the park in a few weeks.

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Canon 7D body
  • Canon EF180mm, f/3.5 macro lens
  • Gitzo 1258-LVL carbon fiber tripod, with Kirk Ent. HD ballhead
  • ISO 400
  • Aperture f/8
  • Shutter 1/160 sec.
