Mystery wildflower needing identification
Two years ago one of our garden club members asked if we knew what this flower might be. At the time, she did not have a picture so we surfed the net and possibly came up with an i.d., but we were never sure.
She did not remember seeing it last year which could imply it blooms every two years (biennial). The flower is about the size of a quarter and if I remember correctly it only stands about 4-5" high.
Another trait is that it only seems to last about 36 hours, then disappears into the background for another two years. Any of our native flower experts care to take a shot at it?
