As appealing as Purple Loosestrife is in the landscape, it’s an aggressive weed as it chokes out growth around it and is quite prolific. This weed begins to flower mid July and lasts 4 to 6 weeks; during which time it beautifies the landscape it invades, while choking the plants around it. Grows in dry or wet terrain.

This group was found in a field outside Hamilton ON CANADA, and taken with a Nikon D80 and 70-300mm ED Nikkor lens. Some diffusion & muting was administered to the image to provide a mystical quality to the setting.

    Beautiful Ron…wish I had that patch in my garden.
    Sorry I didn’t receive the Easter E card. Hugz Carmen

  • Thank you kindly Carmen. About having the loosestrife in your garden, I think you’d end up regretting it, as it would overtake your other botanicals. It DOES look attractive though. // That is so strange with the Easter card, as it’s a reputable site I used. Ohhhh weeellllll….strange things do happen. Hugs, Ron

    VERY GLAD you made the point about this stuff – have spent hours grubbing it out in spots, but it’s a losing battle. So pretty – worse than an attractive nuisance, though. When I saw the thumbnail & title I thought OH, NO – I’m going to have to chastize friend Ron. Was heartened to see that you’ve already taken up the cudgel!! But dare I say it? It’s a pretty shot….

  • Induminable thanks Sheila for your great comments on this AND the Eerie Junction image…and it IS Eerie…not Erie. lol This loosestrife is typical of most attractive species…natural AND human…great to look at, but “bad to the bone”. lol I’m still doubling up as I have yet to acknowledge the last Journal comments.

  • Thanks a bundle Kim for complimenting and faving this and Eerie Junction. Double grateful. Hope you don’t mind the coupling of the 2 images, but it helps me cover some ground in catching up.
