A big, robust wildflower that thrives in the rich alluvium of shaded streambanks and floodplains. Readily adaptable to gardens with most soil types.

Abundant flowers with sun-yellow petals stand over broad foliage. Attractive in masses, will spread over time. Self-sows. Finches and other seed-eating birds feast on its abundant seeds in late summer.
