Combleaf yellow false foxglove! from Ken, South Carolina

Posted on |

I see this plant in many places, especially along I-20 between Columbia and Bishopville (both sides of the interstate.

It feels a little sticky to the touch.

In a group, they don’t all seem to bloom at the same time.

Thank you!

Hi Ken,

this is called the Combleaf yellow false foxglove, Aureolaria pectinata.  A mouthful!  It is a very nice native wildflower found mostly in the sandhills, but it can be found elsewhere.  You can find out more about it here:
