The common name for this attractive plant is Loosestrife. With about 38 different species, this perennial looks great planted next to water or in a boggy area.

The spears of tiny flowers are normally borne in summer and come in shades of deep pink, rose red, and purple that keep going for a long time, some into autumn.

Watch out – a mature plant can produce up to 3 million seeds a year that spread easily. It is such a thug that it is seen as a seriously invasive weed in the USA!
