Artist's Description

Even though the petals are not perfectly shaped, these little Prairie Crocus are so very beautiful in their natural setting in Sandilands Provincial Forest, Hadashville, Manitoba, Canada
Canon EOS XTi; Canon 100mm macro lens

Photo taken by my husband who can work the lens to his delight!!!
Please view large to view the little hairy stems and under-petals. I’ve never seen them this prominent before

Prairie Crocus (Anemone patens)
Also known as: prairie anemone, pasque flower
Bloom time: April – May
These beautiful wildflowers arise from woody roots and often form colonies.

Leaves & Twigs
Basal leaves are grey-green in colour, and divided into narrow lobes. The basal leaves appear after the flower fades.

Flowers & Fruits
Each flower is 4 cm in diameter, with five-to-seven, pale blue to purple, petal-like sepals.
When folded, the outer surface of the sepals appear covered in white woolly hairs.
The flowers are open during the day but close at night.
After the flower fades and the sepals fall off, a shaggy cluster of seeds develops.

Habitat
Grows in prairies and in dry, open woods. Prefers sandy soil and sunny areas.
