I'm sure i have
some anecdotal information about this shot, but I'm
at a loss at the moment.
DESCRIPTION: A single yellow flower atop a
smooth-stemmed plant with many branches. The
flowers are about 1/2" wide with 4 very rounded
petals, framed by 4 green sepals of unequal length.
The leaves are lanceolate, 2 - 4" long and
smooth-margined. The plant rarely grows above 3'
FLOWERS: June to September
HABITAT: Swamps, bog-margins, and around moist
edges of lakes.
OTHER INFORMATION: The reason for its name is the little
'package' fruit that bears the seed is almost
perfectly square on top and contains many seeds.
almost round petals seem barely connected
to the stem.
