  • Question
    I'd love help with this plant. It's growing on a fairly dry woodland in Massachusetts. It's the first year I've noticed the flower, but there are probably 30 of them all growing in one patch. It has a white tubular flower; five sepals; leaves are alternate and very slightly toothed.
    Answer
    Dear alcatjan, I am not able to identify your plant. Would it be possible to get images of the plant in the habitat they grow in? If you are able to acquire additional images, feel free to send them to ahaines[at]newenglandwild.org . Best wishes. (Tuesday, 21 July 2015)
