Alfredia cernua

Family asteraceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers greenish yellow
Size to 10'
Light sun

Tall perennial native to south Siberia and central Asia. Apparently not commonly cultivated, from online photos I reckon it's in the same general class of asteraceae as Silphium and Telekia, with a strongly upright growth habit and bold leaves. Not the easiest kind of plant to site in a modest-sized garden.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
