longleaf primrosewillow, Ludwigia longifolia

We've looked at circumboreal plants. This is a tropical counterpart. Longleaf primrosewillow has spread to tropical shores and damp places around the globe. It has become a serious weed in southern Australia. Here, it only grows in Florida, and while common is not a serious threat. We can enjoy it guilt free. This is a bushy plant up to about head high, with one inch flowers. Lake Co FL, 10/20/15.
