Gooseneck Loosestrife, Lysimachia clethorides, Kentlands Photowalk, Gaithersburg, Maryland

 

Loosestrife Gooseneck flowers come from the Lythrumfamily of flowers of pink, yellow, white and purple colors. The plant gets its descriptive name from the gooseneck loosestrife flowers on their arching stems, which bear a slight crook at the end. It is an extremely tolerant plant which can take sun as well as partial shade and its only complaint is dry soil.

Note: This plant may be considered to be invasive in some areas.

That's quite the name for that flower, Roy.  I almost thought I'd need to treat it with penicillin.
