This plant has a leaf like mugwort... but otherwise... is similar to E. serotinum...

It's not a valerian of some sort is it?

I will look through the leaf pics from a month or two ago... And see if I can't find some to aid in identification... I'm actually surprised this isn't common.

The leaves look like mugwort... But the plant is similar in height and smell to e. serotinum...

I can't find any live plant images, but I found this herbarium specimen that looks close.

Thanks... That certainly looks a likely candidate!

The problem... Is that when I'd previously read the description... as seen here:

And... this is from the sandhills... where it certainly isn't wet...

Here's some pictures I found from May...

And another pic from this morning:




Just for grins... I googled "pinnatifidum".
Seems to apply...
