Native Winged Loosetrife
A favorite little perennial with thousands of lavender flowers in the heat of August, September and into October.
Native loosestrife grows in the Carolina and into the mid West. It’s a great meadow plant, a weaver that runs and makes an open stand of erect, 18 inch flowers. That habit allows other plants such as crinum, day lily, grasses and such to come up in it.
It loves a sort of moist spot, in fact it will thrive in a bog. It will do ok in a normal, heavy soil. And it wills survive periods of dry, but it really is best in a wet place. Fun sun is best.
Loosetrife catches a breeze, it moves and adds life to a hot garden. And pollinators of all kinds flock to it!
Plant now and it’ll look great through November,then come back every year.
