Napaea dioica

This Napaea dioica, or glade mallow, is growing on the Wabash Heritage Trail right across from the softball fields at Lyboult Park. Of Napaea dioica, Deam's Flora of Indiana states: "Local and very rare. Alluvial banks of the Wabash River and moist roadsides." So it is that even the rarest of plants may inhabit urbanized areas.
