Tufted Loosestrife

Here’s something new: tufted loosestrife (Lysimachia thyrsiflora L.), also known as water loosestrife. I happened to stumble across it today at Paul Smiths. It occurs in the northern US and Canada, but has never been documented in Franklin County. It’s a wetland species, ranked S4 (apparently secure) in New York, but is threatened in New Hampshire.
