Great to note that you have found out its name.It would truly help to note the character of the plant.
Too late to add to the blog, but in a case of serendipity, I was just looking at a website for native plants and came across the very plant at http://tinyurl.com/ybpp9yv. It's a larval host for the barred yellow butterfly. Better the butterfly than the blackfly!
Hi, James. Our posts crossed! Check the URL above.
I think I have this one in my yard as well. Have been treating it as weed since I did not see any flowers until recently. Hmm, I may also dig them up and potted. Thanks!
Ami, let me know how it goes. Suzanne Koptur thought they may be more common in wetlands, so I guess it will need a lot of water. Do check the link in my first comment, tho.
I love it when that happens.
Glad you mystery is solved. It's always nice to know the name of a plant.
I'm glad you found out not only the name for this but also the information that the barred yellow butterfly uses it as a larval host. Makes it not only pretty but also useful. I like the way you have displayed it with the orb.
Thanks, Deb, Susan and Nana.
