(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:
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.
