Our annual end-of-summer contest is here, come on down to the Dave's Garden County Fair!

SOLVED: Wild plant ID?

Barling, AR(Zone 7b)

This plant is common on road edges and unused fields in Arkansas / Oklahoma. Butterflies, bees, flies and other insects seek the nectar. What is it?

Take a look at Lespedeza cuneata for a possible ID

Brunswick, GA

Agreed. The stuff is often called "Sericea". It isn't native but has been planted for erosion control and for "wildlilfe food" and now is spread all over the south.

Thanks. You folks are a big help and right on. This part of the south has more than its share.
