Leafcup

large flowered Leafcup Polymnia uvedalia

Noticed an interesting flower today with sunflower like flowers and leaves that looked like maple leaf or sycamore leaf shaped.  Took me a bit to identify it, but turns out to be a large-flowered Leafcup (Polymnia uvedalia).

The Leafcup is a perennial and actually endangered in many northern states like Michigan and New York
