Default What are they?






Same flowers, top picture is early am and bottom is early afternoon.
I found them in a marshy area near a creek.

Several hours and nearly 1,000 clicks later, I figured it out!

^^^ Excellent resource ^^^

Jeffersonia Diphylla -or- Twin Leaf

Description 1 white flower atop a leafless stalk.
Flowers: 1" (2.5 cm) wide; sepals 4, dropping off; petals 8.
Leaves: 3-6" (7.5-15 cm) long, basal, long-stemmed, divided lengthwise into wing-like halves.
Fruit: Large, dry, pear-shaped capsule, with a tiny hinged lid.
Height: 5-10" (12.5-25 cm) when in flower; increasing to 1 1/2' (45 cm) as fruit matures.

Flower April-May.

Habitat Rich, damp, open woods; usually in limestone soil.

Range Ontario and New York south to Georgia and Alabama and northwest to Iowa and Minnesota.

Discussion The solitary flower somewhat resembles that of Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis), but the latter species has palmately compound leaves with 5-9 lobes. Although both common and species names suggest a plant with two leaves, there are actually more; each leaf is divided into two nearly separate leaflets. The genus was named in honor of Thomas Jefferson by his friend and fellow botanist William Bartram. Only one other species of twinleaf occurs in the world: J. dubia, found in Japan.
