Tufted Loosestrife in Bloom at GMNWR


The small colony of tufted loosestrife (Lysimachia thrysiflora) burst into bloom this week during the hot spell. A native member of the Primrose Family and unrelated to purple loosestrife, this is a lovely yet hard to spot wildflower that prefers cool, wet and protected wetland areas.
