When we went outside we immediately went to the entrance of our quadrat, I thought to myself that It's kind of like a secret base because it's in the woods. We were so shocked when we saw something that looked excactly like Purple Loosetrife! We immediately got to work trying to identify and take a boatload of pictures. However, we found out that it wasn't Purple Loosetrife because it had whorled leafs and the leafs were toothed. So that really did crush my hopes of making a big discovery in our own little quadrat.
On Loosestrife, the leafs are blade shaped and toothed, this plant does have blade shaped leafs, but the leafs are smooth.
