Any ideas? Just took this yesterday, 4/7/2002, in Central Ohio. They dotted the hillside in the woods, probably get part sun where they were.

Is it something in the carnation family? The stems remind me of them. I have a dianthus plant with one little bud on it already, so I guess it's possible!

it looks very like Coltsfoot which is a spring flower here. The flowers grow before the leaves. does it have scales, actually bracts, along the flowering stem? I dont know it's worldwide distribution.

The latin name is Tussilago farfara

yeah coltsfoot flowers come before the large leaves and there's no leaves visable yet there.

Funny Evert just posted a picture of this April 4 in the photo forum. Guess it blooms at the same time in Finland as it does in Central Ohio!

Here's a site with more info, including a picture of its foliage: http://2bnthewild.com/plants/H321.htm
