The mystery plant for November
has very unusual looking flowers.
The flowers are yellowish in color,
5 lobed with the 4 lobes on top
being almost identical
while the lobe on the bottom
looks entirely different. 
This lobe is quite wide and
fringed pink and white.
The leaves are opposite and toothed. 
This plant grows 2-4 feet tall. 
It is usually found in rich woods,
occasionally in seasonally wet soil and
blooms from July through September.
The leaves and flowers are said to have a citronella-like fragrance when crushed.
