Silphium integrifolium

Common name: Rosin Weed

Native plant

Rosin Weed is a tall, upright prairie plant that produces branching clusters of large yellow, sunflower-like flowers at the tip of a central stalk.  Blooming occurs late summer to early fall and lasts 1 to 2 months.  Although it can reach heights of nearly 6 feet, it usually stays around 3 to 4 feet tall.  Rosin Weed is shorter than the other native Silphium species.  Its flowers attract a range of pollinators, and its seeds are a food source for the occasional Goldfinch.
