Ludwigia alternifolia


An amazing fall display has dragged me out of a posting hiatus. Seedbox, or Bushy Waterprimrose, has yellow flowers on a 2-3' stalk with elongate leaves during the summer, but in the fall bears yellow and red foliage, which drops to reveal these squarish seeds. As the name denotes, this plant enjoys moist conditions.

Awesome photo! I would love to have a seedbox in my garden. I love the seeds - they look like magical boxes! I would love to see more of your photos.

Lovely photos, makes me think of Oregon somehow and PBS and misty rains. Found your blog by way of Small Doses of Wonder...
