Really like this plant, aphids love it and ladybugs love aphids! Stems are covered with the bugs soon after it blooms. Grows quickly in poor soil, pretty thick shade. I think I might have gotten it in a wildflower seed mix. Tallest stems around five feet. Thick milky white sap.

    Here’s some interesting pictures… I had frost blooms last winter, but nothing like on the link.

    I did include a full view picture of the plant but they cut it out for some reason. I may try again later but think you are absolutely right. I looked at this one Thanks so much, I had looked everywhere

    Going by the flowers and the description, ima go out on a limb here, and tell you that you have verbesina virginica aka frost flower or wing stem. It’s always a good idea to include pics of the leaves and other noticeable traits… In this case… The stem is a defining characteristic.
