June’s mystery plant is
described by Go Botany as
“extremely rare in New England.”
First found by the author in Johnston and later in Providence in 2015,
this plant is a small herbaceous perennial
with 5-petaled yellow flowers
and numerous stamens.
The leaves are alternate, lobed and pinnate.
  As the plants mature, a small stipe forms
and pushes the achenes forward and
separates them from the calyx.
This plant begins to bloom in
March to late spring and
grows from 15” to 25” tall.
It can be found in open woods and
sometimes in open grassy habitats.
