Dame’s Rocket – Hesperis matronalis
It’s been over a year since I added a non-native species to the USWildflowers.com database (I’ve got a big backlog of native species that I need to get added), but I’ve seen quite a few questions about the identity of this plant this spring – it’s often confused with Phlox – so I thought it would be helpful to get it into the database.
