Steve And Muffin’s Wildflowers #12.

Good morning everyone! Our wildflower for today is the “fringed loosestrife”. This is a fairly common wildflower from coast to coast in Canada and also in the US except for certain states such as CA, AZ, NV, and LA. The flowers are about 1 inch (2.5cm) across and generally are nodding. Each plant will produce many flowers, and the plant grows from 1 to 4 feet (30 to 120cm) tall. They generally prefer moist soils and will grow in sun to light shade. They are often found along water edges of lakes, streams, rivers and wetlands. However, they will grow most anywhere. The flowers above were growing on a rocky hillside in full sun, not a typical location for them. In our area they bloom in July, but they bloom longer in more southern locations. They are a nice, bright and cheery wildflower and are a good addition to rock or wildflower gardens. Have a wonderful day everyone and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.
