Canadian Toadflax blooms from March to May, in slender stems up to 30″ tall, although they rarely reach that height on Dewees Island.  Look for it along the edges of the forest and marshes.  It is a tiny purple flower that is susceptible to the slightest movement of the wind, so it’s hard to photograph perfectly in the field.  Locally, it is also known as common toadflax, but this monenclature is confusing because it refers to a much larger plant with larger yellow flowers.
