N. Walker

This plant is sometimes called Indian physic because of its formerly used medicional properties. Nobody seems to know who "Bowman" was. It is native plant to the eastern and southern United States. It has very slender, 5 petaled, star-like, white flowers. Found on the trail that extends westward from the boardwalk.
