Normally this flower sports purple flowers, but apparently this one dared to be different and bloomed in white.
In the world of plant nuts, I recently came across an article about how there are some native heal-all plants, which is a shocker because we've pretty much relagated this "weed" of lawns and roadsides into the naturalized non-native group.
One of the things to look for on the native variety (P. v. elongata) is white hairs along the four ridges of the square stem (yes, it is in the mint family). Zooming in on the stem, it looks like there are white hairs on the ridges, doesn't it?
Meanwhile, in the roadside ditch, "my" nodding ladies tresses (Spiranthes cernua) are blooming in quantity.
Lovely white dragon heads. If you can click on the photo and zoom right in, it looks like the petals are all a-glisten with moisture. Do they absorb the humidity from the air, or is it a trick of the light?
Okay, this one isn't white, but sometimes my camera washes out the purple color so the point where it practically looks white. It's eyebright (Euphrasia americana), a native (!) plant found all over the place up here, mostly in "waste" areas.
