-- note: there was much confusion over Prairie loosestrife vs Whorled loosestrife;  the species I and most people call Prairie loosestrife (Lysimachia quadriflora), is listed by the MB-CDC as Whorled loosestrife (Steironema quadriflorum, an old synonym);  John produced a book describing a different species called Whorled loosestrife and by then everyone was confused:-)
