PALE MEADOW BEAUTY
A common plant of flatwoods, bogs and marshes throughout most of Florida, except for the southernmost peninsula. The range extends from Texas to Michigan through much of the eastern United States north to New York and Massachusetts.
The four petals that vary in color from pale purple to white easily fall off - especially in the afternoon. Pale meadow beauty has eight curved stamens with yellow anthers over 5mm long. The opposite leaves are three-viened, hairy and have finely toothed margins.
