Description:
Savannah meadow beauty. From Natural Gardens (pages 365-367): "Perennials with showy flowers having the corollas borne above the ovary on the vase-like structure (hypanthium) which is free from the enclosed ovary. The 4 sepals spread from the rim of this hypanthium; ovary 4-celled: leaf-blades oval or narrower, commonly 3-veined from near the base. Most of the meadow beauties are eastern bog plants. Of these an especially noteworthy one is the tall savannah meadow beauty (R. Alifanus, fig. 57)..."
