Gardening in a woods in eastern Iowa; a visual narrative.

Now, this is the real Leucosceptrum stellipilum: pinkish-mauve flowers (check!); large, coarse leaves (check!); spelled right (check... it's not leucoseptum, stelliperum, or stellipillum). I like the day-glow electric blue anthers; a nice touch on a bright raspberry flower. The bees like it too. So I do bring you accurate plant information on this blog... just not always right away.
