The unique Water-Willow is an 3-9 foot aquatic shrub with 1/2 to 1 inch magenta flowers that blooms in July and August. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
I’ve seen them growing in the shallow waters on the Red Maple Swamp Trail at Fort Hill, the Silver Spring Trail at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary in Wellfleet or at Wiley Park by the bridge. It is really cool to see how they grow in clusters along the main stem.
Have you seen any Water-Willows this summer? #eastham #wellfleet
