Anemone lancifolia

Anemone lancifolia is an herbaceous plant species in the genus Anemone and family Ranunculaceae. Plants grow 20 to 30 cm tall, growing from a horizontally orientated rhizome, flowering mid spring to early summer. The flowers have white sepals that are 12–20 mm long. This species much resembles Anemone quinquefolia except that it is larger growing. After flowering fruits called achenes are formed in a small cluster, each achene is 3.5–5 mm long, lacks wings and has a straight or partly curved beak that is 1-1.5 mm long.

Native from the eastern US in the states of North and South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. Anemone lancifolia is normally found growing in rich damp soils in woods.[1]
