Bohemia Ecological Preserve

This Panicled Willowherb blossom has two seed pods below it ready to pop open into four hairy, curly lobes that release their seeds suddenly. The wind will parachute the seeds to a new location. The plant is often 3' tall but wispy and thin with a very tiny 4 petaled flower. It is native to North America. Evening Primrose (Onagraceae) Family.
