Hi Ginger! Your bloom looks like it has 2 clear petals (vs. just 1 very small one) and lacks the brown dots in the middle of the yellow things, so I don't think it is C. communis. I'm leaning toward C. erecta.

I think virginica has 3 same-size petals. I didn't see it in person like you did but in the pic it looks like the lower is a smaller petal than the other two, that they usually refer to as clear, but agree yours & many other pics show a blue hue to the clear petal(s.) Opaque might be a better term for those different petals on some of the species.
