This plant has flowers that are shaped in a 6-pointed star. The leaves are a medium green and it lies low on the ground. A friend said that it is "arithonium", but we think it is spelled wrong. Any ideas?

I think your friend may have meant Erythronium but I don't think that's what it is. Is it possible to get a closer view of one of the flowers Betsy?

Mystery solved. I emailed Vickie in the Garden Shop at Lakewold Gardens in Tacoma, WA I saw this flower blooming at Lakewold last weekend. She replied saying: "This is an Anemone nemorosa 'pleniflora'. I had some earlier in the spring. Most of the time you can find the single anemones but the double ones are a little bit more rare." I did a Google Image search on this plant name and found numerous close-ups of the flowers.
