This is "Sundrops" (Oenothera perennis) a late spring/summer bloomer in our area. This one is complete with an ittsy bittsy, teeny weenie yeller pokadot... spider. These are in the Primrose Family and look very similar to the Evening Primrose except that the latter blooms in the evening (imagine that!). Found this one in a ditch (where else!) in the Spotsylvania CH battlefield.
