Fraser's Marsh St. Johnswort

Triadenum fraseri

Description:

Flowers are purplish-pinkish petals with 3 yellow nectaries that alternate with the stamens that are arranged in 3 groups of 3, fused at the base; 1 to 2 cm wide, 5 petals & 5 pointed sepals; in clusters at stem tips or in leaf axils.

Habitat:

Muddy shoreline of a beaver dammed pond.

Notes:

Some say that the flowers do not open during the day or are rarely seen. Lucky for me I found the right conditions, they were well shaded by conifers.
