Cut-Leaved Anemone (Anemone multifida)

Cut-leaved anemone has basal leaves on long stalks which are deeply divided into three parts, and each of these parts is deeply lobed into fine divisions. The leaves at the base of the flowering stalk are similar, but nearly stalkless. The flowers range in color from white to yellowish to red, with 5-9 sepals.  Known in Maine from calcareous rivershore ledges, rooted in the narrow fissures.

You can learn more about this species from its page on the Maine Natural Areas Program's website.
