This tall perennial forms a dome-shaped crown of bright yellow flowers that attract bees and butterflies. Its less-formal (yet still cheery and beautiful!) appearance makes it a better candidate for a meadow-like planting or naturalized area than a formal or front-yard garden. Host plant to the Silvery Checkerspot butterfly and the Gold Moth. Deer-resistant. Full sun to light shade and mesic (moderate) to moist soil. 3-8'.

Verbesina alternifolia (Wingstem)
