Philydrum lanuginosum  Wooly Frog’s Mouth 

Common name  because of the resemblance of its flower to that of an open frog’s mouth. Philydrum is an emergent aquatic perennial that occurs along the margins of fresh water creeks, rivers, dams, lagoons and boggy areas. It is wide spread on the coast and northern inland areas. As a shorter lived perennial it will naturally transition in and out of the environment as it dies and self seeds. It’s a clumping plant with lime green soft spongy, upright foliage that develops reddish tones with age and in cooler temperatures.
