I am new to a gardeners form, I apologize if this was not the normal way to start a thread.
I am in zone 5, northwestern NY state. I have a perennial flower given to me by my
neighbor who has no knowledge of its name. It is root based and not a bulb.
It appears to be in the buttercup family and resembles a winter Aconite somewhat.
It is bright yellow and about 12-15 inches tall. Each stem has one bloom about the
size of a daffodil bloom. Leaves are small oval and smooth edged. It blooms in
late June or early July. The blooms last about a week to 10 days and it does not
bloom more than once a year. It spreads well and I have had these about 10
years now and would like to find out what it is. I have no pics of it unfortunately.

I will appreciate any ideas as to what it might be.
Thanks

I am stumped...does it spread in clumps? I was thinking 'spurge'.

I do not think it is a ranunculus. It blooms in warmer weather, is not a bulb base and the leaves
are oval and smaller with smooth edges. The leaves turn red in fall if that is any help.
Let me know of any other possibilities.

Thanks

I am thinking of hard of what grows in your zone...Helleborus comes to mind as well.

I think it is oenothera fruticosa . Common name sundrops or suncups. Also called evening primrose.
I found a picture that looks like my memory of them in bloom. The leaves are spear shaped. I mis remembered
them as being oval. Sorry if that threw anyone off the track.

Thanks for your input
