Geum vernum B. S. Walters

Local in rich moist forests, especially along trails and old roads.

Distinctive in its very small, early-blooming flowers, basal leaves with usually simple cordate blades, and strongly elevated head of achenes.

This is a plant that has clearly increased in abundance and distribution in recent years.
