Lowland Yellow Loosestrife (Hybrid Loosestrife)
Lysimachia hybrida Michx.

Despite the names "hybrid loosestrife" and "Lysimachia hybrida," this plant is not a hybrid. These names probably comes from the fact that the leaves are intermediate in shape between those of fringed loosestrife and lance-leaved loosestrife (Lysimachia lanceolata).
