    Well I knew april's name sounded familiar. No Laura I can't find my "Field Book" I fear it is one of the ones in the freezer (I got a few field guides wet on my hike the other day). I will continue to search.

    No Tre, it isn't V. papilionacea. Mine have no yellow present in the petals whatsoever. Additionally, look at the shape of the petals on my plant. They are quite distinctly rotund. V. sororia is a synonym for V. papilionacea. I have V. sororia here as well as a few hybrids of V. sororia but I am relatively sure this plant isn't V. papilionacea. V. papilionacea is truly a variable species in that it is a lot like oaks and seems to hybridize with everything around it which would put us back to a hybrid. I actually think this is some sort of a hybrid of V. odorata which would mean that it is a naturally occurring hybrid. The leaves were pretty much telltale that it would be a native though.
