This wonderful US native, from Michigan south to Florida, can be found in roadside ditches, pond edges, and wet prairies...a habitat also preferred by crushed beer cans and used condoms. The 1' tall stems, badly in need of a shave, are adorned by opposite-held, fuzzy, linear green leaves. Rhexia mariana spreads quickly by short rhizomes, and when happy can make an 8' wide clump in 3 years. The 1' tall plants are topped from June through October with 1" white flowers (often with a tiny flush of pink), each with prominent, yellow stamens, which serve as a bull's-eye for busy pollinators. Do not plant this near smaller, wimpy will eat them for lunch.
