Purple loosestrife in mid-June
This picture was taken at Brookwood Farm on the Milton/Canton town border, on June 17, 2009. NepRWA Summer Intern Katina shows us, relative to her height (about 5 ft. 4"?), the height of Purple loosestrife plants (green plants in foreground). Note that Katina is surrounded by the taller stems of the previous season's flowering Purple loosestrife stalks.
