purple-leafed loosestrife

12 Jun

Unlike years past, when this plant produced only one bloom on each stem, this year there are multiple blooms and the leaves are holding more of their purple color instead of fading to a purple-green–probably because they’re blooming earlier and haven’t yet been affected by summer’s heat. They still are not as bright as they were earlier this spring (see ‘spiderwort’ post of 5/2/12).
