One of the first blooms on the forest floor is round-lobed (Anemone americana) or sharp-lobed hepatica (Anemone acutiloba).
Their petals vary from brilliant blues, to soft pinks and purples or pure whites. Much like our own hair may do as we age, their petals become increasingly white with time. They can have a few or several petals. And their fussy stems will rise from the leaf litter and the plant will bloom before growing their basal leaves, which, as the names suggest, will be round or sharp.
