The second thimbleweed we're trying (the first being A. virginiana). They differ in their leaf shape, A. cylindrica having less dentation along the margins, and some palmate leaves. This one is definitely a wildflower, not as refined or showy as many of its windflower sisters. I like the "thimbles" (the elongated seedheads that from immediately after flowering) better than the smallish white flowers themselves.
|well-drained soil, drought-tolerant
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
