rose of Plymouth, Sabatia stellaris

Another irresistible rose-gentian. This one for some reason called rose of Plymouth. Maybe it gets just far north enough to get to Plymouth Rock? These beautiful inch-or-a-little-mores grow only in salty ground, so you need to visit the coast to find them. They grow from MA(E) south through RI(T), CT(E), NY(T), NJ, MD, DE, VA, NC, SC, GA, FL, AL, MS, and LA. Wakulla Co FL, 7/8/18.
