Flowering - June - September.

Habitat - Streambanks, lake margins, wet meadows. Often growing partially submerged.

Origin - Native to U.S.

Other info. - This plant is very easy to identify in the wild due to its distinct flower, square stems, and choice of habitat. It is common in the wild and is even working its way into cultivation along with other species of the genus.
Steyermark splits the species into two varieties. Variety ringens has leaves which clasp the stem. A second variety, variety minthodes (Greene) Grant , has leaves which taper to the base and do not clasp. Both are common.
