Plant ID

Maybe, someone can help.I am sure it is not a native because I keyed it out in Newcombe and came up zilch. I suspect it might be one from a seed exchange because there are four or five of them. The leaves resemble maple leaves and are basal except for one on the flowering stem which is aobut six inches in height. There is one flower on the stalk. It is a pale yellow with five petals about 1/8 " in length.

Could it be a young, single stemmed waxbells (kirengeshoma palmata)?

Here is a link that might be useful: Waxbells

RE: Plant ID

It deinitely is not Kiringeshoma. I have both K. plamata and K. koreana. The flowers on my mystery plant are really tiny and there are basal leaves, but only one leaf on the flowering stem.

RE: Plant ID

Maybe if you describe it in great detail in lieu of a photo--also try the Name That Plant forum; there are some wizards over there.

Is the flower a composite, flat and daisy-like? Or more cupped? Does it look like a ptentilla or cinquefoil? Are the stems succulent, downy, green or red, woody, etc? A fibrous or tap root? Any scent? What else is growing around it? And so on . . .
