The golden ragwort is a wildflower native to the eastern United States and Texas. Its thin narrow stems rise from a fairly dense collection of leaves at its base, and ends in a flat cluster or bright yellow, daisy-esque flowers. The flowers have sparse, this petals surrounding a round, yellow head. This wildflower can thrive even in substantial shade, but the plant required fairly high and consistent soil moisture to survive.
