Plant aka Canada Hawkweed. Perennial. Native range: s. Labrador, PEI to Ontario, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, south to Illinois, Ohio, Maine, New York,Pennsylvania & New Jersey. Its leaves are sharply toothed and up to 4" long decreasing in size toward the tip of the multiflowering stems. Flowers are 1" diameter. Give this one space. Is impressive on its own, however, would look good with Helenium autumnale 'Zimbelstern' - Sneezeweed. Blooms just about the same time, sun requirements are matched and height is alike.
