Zizia aurea

Common name: Golden Alexanders

Native plant

Golden Alexanders produce bright yellow, large umbels of flowers that bloom late spring to early summer and last about a month.  This plant is quite common in our region of Illinois.  Plants can reseed heavily under ideal conditions, so deadheading is encouraged.  Flowers are visited by a range of bees and butterflies enjoying the early source of pollen and nectar.
