Artist's Description

This wildflower is in the aster family. It bears large golden flowers about 3 inches wide, with a height of growth to about 5-10 feet. It flowers from August through October along roadsides, in fields, and along fence rows.This golden wildflower is common throughout the east except far north, and also grows in the northwestern US.
This species was cultivated by Native Americans long ago, as the tubers are edible and highly nutritious. Today the tubers can be purchased in many health food stores.
The name Jerusalem stems from the Italian word meaning “to turn to the sun” which these flower heads are noted to do.
