Hesperis matronalis (Dame's Rocket) along the Skally at Mile Marker 12 in White Bear Lake

Hesperis matronailis (Dame’s Rocket) at mile post 12 on the Skally

According to the Hesperis matronalis (Dame’s Rocket) entry on Minnesota Wildflowers, this flower blooms in late spring and are short lived. Driving past today I noticed the blooms were all gone and the area now looks very green and boring.
