Verbesina alternifolia - wingstem

This widespread native species is tall and aggressive enough that it often outcompete other natives who would like to grow in similar meadow like edges and openings in deciduous canopy, creating large colonies. The positive side to this is that it can better compete with truly awful invasive species like Porcelain Berry (Ampelopsis brevipedunculata) which are taking over many of these environments. It does not mind semi disturbed areas, as long as they are not too dry.
