Sighting Info

Observed: July 20, 2011 @ 9:00 PM
Posted on: August 13, 2011 @ 7:12 AM (diff: 24 days)
The low shrub, a native plant of North America, may be only six inches high, or it may attain three feet. The narrow evergreen leaves, pale on the underside, have a tendency to form groups of threes, standing upright when newly put forth, but bent downward with the weight of age. A peculiarity of the plant is that clusters of leaves usually terminate the woody stem, for the flowers grow in whorls or in clusters at the side of it below.
