Steve And Muffin’s Wildflowers #26.

Hi everyone! Today’s wildflower is the “marsh hedge nettle”, also sometimes known as “woundwort”. These are beautiful flowers in lavender and purple. It is a native wildflower that blooms from June to August. The plant can grow up to 3 feet (90cm) tall and is found in partial shade to sunny locations. It is usually found along streams, rivers, ponds and lakes, in wet fields and along the edges of woods. It is generally quite hairy and has a square stem. They are in the mint family of plants. They can be found across Canada and most of the US except from Texas to Florida and up to N. Carolina. Here they are quite common along our river. I hope you have a great day and God bless!

      • Yes, I did indeed, Steve! I also took notice of some other beautiful wildflowers on a hike with my visiting family last week as a result of your blog. I just looked at them and did not pick them. 😁 Thank you, have a wonderful day as well! πŸ˜πŸ“·

      • I always say, the best way to enjoy wildflowers is in person and with a camera. That way others can enjoy them too! Good for you Beverly. Always so nice to enjoy the beauty around us that God has given to us!πŸ˜€πŸ˜ΊπŸŒžπŸ“·
