    Go to the link I provided. Verbesina Virginica has white flowers, and is a treasured native wildflower. The frost flowers around the base of the plant on cold winter mornings are especially awe-inspiring. I had one grow to nine foot tall last summer in my garden…. Sadly these pictures are the year previous, and not as impressive as it got last year…

    The 3ed pic is prickly lettuce nearly 15 feet tall. I’ll let you know what it reaches.

    Stone, you are partially right. The sp is probably right. I read somewhere that all the verbesina had yellow flowers. This one has white. However, as much as I love wild or tame flowers, it is still a weed to me. From late summer on, the leaves are ugly. The flowers are ugly. But, I am not on a rampage to eradicate. We have a large beautiful Shumard oak in our yard. this spring, more than 1000 seedlings (weeds)in my wife’s San Augustine.
