Oenothera ?

adidas(6/7)May 6, 2013

Is this related to the evening primrose? Flowers look similar but foliage is all wrong? Is it native to the northeast (VA)?

Thanks for any help!

If the flower goes with the multi foliage rather than the lance leaves, it could be a Ranunculus.

Looks like a trollius to me.

Yes, the flowers go with ferny foliage...can you tell which species? Native or not? Invasive?

Def. looks like Trollius genus which is in the Ranunculaceae family! Thank-you both!

Could we have a clearer view of the flowers please? Could be Ranunculus acris, Meadow Buttercup. I can't see if the flowers are double or spherical enough for Trollius, or big enough.

Flora,

I think you might be right...another noxious weed...I am posting flower close-up and leaf close-up....does this look like Ranunculus acris?

Meadow Buttercup. Ranunculus acris. A beautiful denizen of the British Meadow. Sadly, a weed for you.

Here is a link that might be useful: A buttercup meadow (not my photo)

Thanks for confirming, flora! They really are beautiful aren't they? I think I might make an exception and leave it be. It is the only specimen I can see...and I am trying for a mini meadow...thanks for the meadow link!
