Wood Anemone

Toothwort or not…I found out my dilemma in correctly identifying which Toothwort this was is because it is actually a Wood Anemone! I had not seen Anemone with only 3 leaves but a good friend helped me out with this one.

Sounds like some serious fungus in the mouth right? It is actually a family of wildflowers that bloom each spring here in Bear Woods. On our walk the other day we found a patch of Toothwort. I have had some trouble identifying them because typically the plant has several flowers at the top, where these all had a single flower. The flower and the leaves all say Toothwort, so that is what I am going with on it!

So as I have mentioned above the flower is actually Wood Anemone. I now feel better about being confused as to which Toothwort it was or in actuality isn’t. Thanks to a good friend and neighbor for their ID!
