Hi Rick! Smiling

Thanks for the link, interesting to see the Vernonia fasciculata in the wild! The plant was new to me when I saw it in my brother's garden, it is quite impressive in size too, it must be veeery hardy being wild in Minnesota! Rolling my eyes.

If you think that size is impressive, look at Vernonia gigantea...

Wow, what a beautiful giant! Funny how you had to take out the ladder to take photos of the flowers! Hilarious!
