Posted By: samfsmith

Notes:

I took these photos last summer at Chattahoochee Bend State Park (which is still under construction). The plant is over 6 feet tall, and the bugs really like it – look at the holes in the leaves. The closeup is of the blooms at the top. So what is it?

Thanks,
Sam

    Please let it live! :) the whole top of the stalk will fill up progressively with yellow blooms, and the bumblebees love it. Plus, what a conversation piece.
