This is a photo I took in June of 1988 and only recently scanned it to make a file for Flickr. I saw this flower in a woods not far from Lake Michigan at Hog Island Point State Forest Campground, near Epoufette in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. It was about a hundred or so yards from the beach in pretty thick woods. It was a cloudy day, though, so it might’ve looked thicker than it was. There was a small stand of these flowers. Very pretty, yes?
I might have had an idea what species it was 23 years ago, but I’ve lost that information now. Does anyone have a clue? Even a relatively broad family name would be good to have.
