Notes:

This is a tall yellow wild flower (3-4 foot) that grows vigorously around my yard and I have seen it in other areas. It has a spike type yellow flower and is blooming now. Has nice leaf structure. Seems to be pretty invasive. Probably pretty common but not sure what it is. Appreciate any id help.

    This fine native wildflower is one of the yellow verbesinas. http://virginiawildflowers.org/2013/09/01/yellow-crownbeard/ Verbesina attracts a number of butterflies and other pollinators, and is a great wildflower. In my garden, I’ve found that the yellow verbesina is more prolific than the white, and I can imagine a case where the extras might should be dug up and shared, or thinned as needed. As they seem to spread from seed, rather than by stolons as turf does, they are very easy to control.
