This is the flower of the Small Flowered Paw-Paw (Asimina parviflora)

This small tree grows wild in my yard and flowers each spring. The flowers seem like they’ll just start talking any minute. I wonder if this is what inspired “The Little Shop of Horrors” .

The plant also comes with 2 bonuses – The edible banana like fruits, and it is a host plant for the Zebra Swallowtail butterfly – one of my favorites!
