Towering stalks up to nine feet high bear large yellow flowers with unusual green center cones. The basal leaves align themselves North and South, giving the plant its common name of Compass Plant. Also, pioneers and Indians chewed resin from the stems to freshen their breath! Excellent for naturalizing, these wildflowers also attract butterflies.
