Rogue flower or beautiful weed??
Can you help me ID this lovely flower?
It appeared in a patch of weeds... I had a huge spruce tree taken down last winter, and so far haven't managed to plant the bed that I expect to be there. While yanking up all the weeds that had sprung up, I found this.
The flower is about 2" across, on a stem about 15" or so. The flower is slightly fragrant; the leaves are not.
I know it isn't anything I planted. If it is a weed, I want more like this! I wonder if it might not have come from a seed that was long dormant in the dry deep shade under that spruce, and germinated when some light and moisture got in?
Wherever it came from, I'd like to know what it is. Thanks for any help.
