Shrub. White flower with a central design. Looks like an orchid but definitely is not.
By the side of a pond adjoining a field and by the side of a busy national highway. It was deep inside bushy weeds.
Medicinal used in coughs and cold. I have a plant growing in my garden and use the leaves to brew decoction...I have NEVER seen it blooming in my garden. To think I never recognized it. I was so taken in by the flower...I never looked at the leaves...I am mortified.
