Zizia aptera

Common name: Heart-Leaved Alexanders

Native plant

Heart-Leaved Alexanders have bright yellow umbels of flowers that are 2-3 inches across.  They bloom in May and last about a month.  Unlike the more common Zizia aurea, this plant has heart-shaped, smooth basal leaves and can tolerate drier conditions.  Clumps can become quite large, and divisions in the spring can prevent overcrowding.
