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.
