Recently, while walking through one of Mayslake Forest Preserve’s prairies, I noticed a plant.
The plant appeared to be an anemone, and the tall anemone it proved to be. I hadn’t been aware that any anemones dispersed in this way, and so needed to confirm the identification.
Here are the flower and leaves during the growing season.
It’s nice to know there are always more botanical surprises waiting to be found.
