Mystery Plant

Can someone identify this plant for me? At first I thought it was a Swamp Maple tree sapling, but then I noticed the flowers. The plant is growing at the edge of some woods, in ground that was bulldozed a few years ago. It's about 3' tall and it looks like a young tree. It's flowering now....zone 4 in the Adirondacks, upstate NY.

  • Hi Trudi,
    It sure looks like an anemone to me. Try a search for Anemone hupehensis and see if you think that's it.

  • Thanks for responding Zoey! The flower does look similar to the Anemone hupehensis, but the leaves look different. I'll post a picture of one of the leaves in a bit. They're larger than a dollar bill!
