Enchanter’s Nightshade

The genus Circaea is named after Circe the enchantress in Greek mythology, who was said to have used this plant for her magical purposes.  I think this is one of the best names! Has only two petals, but they are deeply lobed so they look like four. Evening Primrose family. (Not related to deadly nightshade.) Native.
