Polymnia uvedalia from Jamie in SC

Posted on |

This plant is growing in a flood prone area where two creeks come together in Richland county. They are 5-6 feet tall, die off in the fall/winter, and have small yellow flowers.

Hi Jamie,

this native plant is called Polymnia uvedalia, or bearfoot, in the sunflower family. Some call it Smallanthus uvedalia.
