Flowers/Plants/Shrubs/Trees - Purple Loosestrife
Order:Myrtales Family: Lythraceae Genus:Lythrum


Purple Loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria) is considered invasive in Missouri. It is beautiful, gets loads of pollinator action but apparently is a prolific seeder and causes problems in rivers and marshes. I think mine must be a hybrid because it does not spread and the seeds are large.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
