Flowers (Moist Soil)

Wild Iris

Striking blue and white flowers stand out in any wetland setting – woodland or prairie.

Calamus, Sweet Flag, Rat Root

The plant of many names! Calamus is know for it’s extraordinarily bitter, hot roots that have wonderful medicinal properties.

Marsh Hedge-Nettle

This wetland mint gets a terminal spike of beautiful pink flowers and its leaves have a distinctive bumpy texture to them.

American Water Horehound

Another one of our wetland mints, this little number has distinct, lobed leaves and white flower clusters appear in the leaf axils.

Bugleweed

Not to me mistaken for wild mint, which looks similar and often grows nearby.

Wild Mint

 A wetland mint that produces clusters of tiny, light pink flowers in the leaf axils.

Nuttall’s Sunflower

The best thing about this plant is that the flowers smell like chocolate!

Swamp Milkweed

Beautiful deep pink flowers with white centers emit a wonderful aroma that resembles cherry Fruit Loops!
