We found some yellow trout lily’s this week in Central WI. But your wild flower guide does not have them in it.
Probably because I haven’t come across one yet and don’t have a photo! Where did you see it? I still lack a good number of flowers here. I hope to fill in the gaps a bit this season. 🙂

I found one this week also. I recently purchased a home near Tipler, WI, in Florence County (almost a yooper). I was checking the trees on the edge of the property and came across giant trilliums and the trout lilly. All growing in the shade under pine trees. I can send a picture if you would like one.
Sure, that’d be great! Maybe watermark it with your name 🙂
Last year or the year before in Waukesha county I started to see a very different yellow flower along roadsides. They are vey vibrant yellow with much smaller blossoms than dandelion and also low growing. When there is a curb they tend to cascade over and down where there is no soil. On a trip to the Fox valley and Iola I see them up there as well. I wonder what thy are and are they truly wild or has the state started sowing them. They look a lot better than a lot of the weeds growing along the roadsides.
Got a photo? Are the blossoms similar to a dandelion or with more distinct petals? What time of year? Low growing makes me think you might be talking about Bird’s Foot Trefoil, a non-native plant but abundant through the warmer seasons.
You also don’t have any Swamp Buttercup..is that native to Wi.?
It IS native, and I even have a photo but haven’t gotten around to getting it posted.
Here’s the thing: I have a photo of what appears to be swamp buttercup or maybe hispid buttercup — but the flowers only have 4 petals rather than the expected 5. Curious.
