Artist's Description

I’m tentatively identifying this as Tickseed Sunflower, a native annual or biennial plant that can grow up to 4 feet tall, branching occasionally. A plant will often have several flowers in bloom at the same time. Each daisy-like flower is about 2" across, and they bloom from late summer to early fall. The flowers are slightly fragrant, which is noticeable in a large patch. They are in the aster family.

They like full sun and wet or moist areas with rich soil. This plant is easy to grow, but could take over at a disturbed site that is sunny and moist. It can form large colonies by reseeding itself. This species of Bidens is more tolerant of hot dry weather than many others.

The name “Tickseed” comes from the way the seeds stick to clothing.

This picture was taken in Montgomery County, Pennylsvlania, USA, on September 14, 2012.
