Steve And Muffin’s Wildflowers #64.

Hi everyone! Today’s wildflower is a bit different, it’s called the “marsh cinquefoil”. Most cinquefoils are yellow, with one being white, but this is the only one that is this dark red/purple color. Plus it is the only one that likes to live right in water, though it does sometimes live out of water, but even then it will be close to water. Being found mostly in water or very wet bogs makes it hard to find and very hard to photograph as well. It is a native wildflower and blooms from June to August. Flowers are 3/4 to 1 inch (18 to 25mm) across. It will grow in sun or partly shady locations and can be found in wet peaty/boggy places, wet ditches, shallow areas of lakes and rivers. It can be found right across Canada and in the US across the northern states and further south in the western mountains. I hope you have a great day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

      • That’s too bad, it’s never nice to be alone, but really hard when it’s time to celebrate. I sure hope things get better over there real soon. Here Covid is getting worse again, but hopefully they won’t have to bring back lockdown for us. I really hope that you will have a beautiful weekend, God bless!😀😺🌞☕☕🌹🌺
