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!
