Silphium perfoliatum



Commonly known as Cup Plant, this towering late summer bloomer gets its common name from the way its leaves clasp the stems, holding a reservoir of water.  Yellow daisies develop lovely and curiously shaped seed pods (resembling green roses) on 5-7’+ stalks. A favorite food source of goldfinch.
