Purple can be white

Anemone Flower with Column Forming 3459

Not long ago you saw a purple anemone. I’ve observed that a fair number of purple flowers have white variants, and that’s certainly the case with our local anemones (in fact the white is more common than the purple). Here, from the margin of Riata Trace Pond on March 11th, you see some traces of purple, but white predominates. Notice how the central seed column in this specimen is longer, which is to say more mature, than in the previous one.
