water pimpernel, Samolus ebracteatus

Water pimpernel is also called limewater brookweed. That should give us an idea of where it grows. You are most likely to see these two-foot stalks right at the edges of wetlands and waterways. This one was at the edge of a glade in the Everglades. The flowers are not much over a quarter inch across. Water pimpernel grows in FL, KS, LA, NM, NV, OK, and TX. Miami-Dade CO FL, 3/20/16. Water pimpernel family, Theophrastaceae.
