bloodwort

Another herb that’s in bloom right now! I’ve posted this one before when it first started blooming several weeks ago in mid-August, but decided to post another pic of it because it is still blooming. It’s called a blood flower. I didn’t noticed before that it is also called a cotton bush. It produces pods that burst open with cottony seeds, while it is also flowering. Another perennial that I don’t think we’ll see again next year. Maybe it will prove me wrong. I could find no medicinal or herbal uses for it. The butterflies find it tasty.
