I found these growing in a boggy area along a pathway.
Perennial herb, wild throughout eastern and midwestern US, zones 5-10
Cold, wet winters will kill it, it prefers drier areas
Blooming late March ( spring – summer depending on location )
Considered invasive in some locations. Many home owners mow it after it flowers.
Considered a medicinal plant, Gray’s Pharmacopoeia (1848) lists its uses for warts and cancer but studies haven’t found any medicinal uses. aka Cancer Weed
Well liked by bees and butterflies
Easy to grow from seed
