purple loosestrife

10 Jun

Most varieties of loosestrife spread rapidly–some would even call them invasive (see ‘gooseneck loosestrife posted 5/7/12 and spiderwort posted 5/2/12)–but this variety was developed to form clumps so that it could be better contained in the garden. The name is misleading since neither the leaves nor the flowers are purple, but it makes a nice addition to bouquets.
