Kirby Wildflowers: Windflower or Carolina Anenome

Kirby Wildflowers: Windflower or Carolina Anenome. Native to the U.S. The small “stalks” at the base of the middle part of the flower are stamens, which are the male flower parts that make and disperse pollen. The receptacle or middle part houses many individual female flower parts, each of which will produce a single seed. Notice how the petals are white within towards the center and lavender outwards. I included a grasshopper’s view from the ground. Windflowers are starting to bloom along the dam road. #DoctorBot #LakeKirby
