Whats the name of this wild flower?
The prominent stamens with four petals %26amp; opposite leaves with smooth edges make me think you have found a shrub dogwood. There are ~ 6 species but the one with reddish stems is the red osier (Cornus stolonifera or C. sericea).
Reply:Hmm... I don't live in Vermont. I live in Ontario... but I have never seen that flower before. But it's really pretty.
