We’re not sure if this is a flower or a weed with spokes, but here’s a picture of it last September. Note the stem branching to the right and the pink spokes at the end with what look like buds on a few of the tips.
We found it in a shady path in our woods. The spokes on that one stem gradually turned deep red and then black in winter. I helped the stem with the spokes survive the winter and in the picture today (below) you can barely make out the old spokes over a light grey leaf to the right of the new spokes. The new green spokes are central in the photo.
So, what kind of a flower is this? We think the closet thing to it might be a White Dead-nettle or Lamium Album, but maybe not. More flowering mysteries!
