common frostweed, Crocanthemum canadense

This is one of our northern frostweeds. Not related to yesterday's more southern version. But it displays the same fascinating ice eruptions from its winter stems. These flowers are about an inch across, showing at the tops of foot high plants. Common frostweed grows in AL, CT, DE, GA, IA, IL, IN, KY(E), MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, NC, NH, NJ, NY, OH, PA, RI, SC, TN(X), VA, VT, WI, WV, NS, ON, and QC(L).
