April 15, 2013 -- NC wildflowers

I visited the North Carolina Botanical Garden yesterday, where I was reminded how beautiful southeastern wildflowers are. Cultivated flowers seem sort of garish and over-obvious in comparison. Table decorations at a luncheon I attended were done by Wendy Wenck from wildflowers at the Garden. So beautiful! Nancy Easterling gave me one to take home, and here it is in the windowsill. I know it includes yellow ragwort, sedge foliage, and blue woodland phlox, but I'm not sure what the creamy white flowers are. From a shrub, I think. Maybe a native spirea?
