Swamp Candle (Yellow Loosestrife) (Lysimachia terrestris)

Of the primrose family, swamp candles will be found in damp places standing up in numbers, like their name betrays, like so many yellow candles. These candles are spikes of numerous small flowers. If the yellow petals are examined one will see small red spots which circle about. Check for blossoms of the swamp candles beginning in July.
