    The lettuce never went past 13 feet 2 inches. Still an impressive (weed)?

    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… http://stonethegardener.tumblr.com/tagged/verbesina-virginica

    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.
