Wildflower that likes wet ground in prairies. low cultivated and idle fields, ditches, and roadsides. Seeds popular with midwestern birds (ducks, bobwhite quail, songbirds). Cottontail rabbits enjoy their availibility for cusine. Bloom August - October. Some years peak bloom in central Illinois corresponds with annual Monarch migration; large tracts of Bidens might have hundreds of Monarchs, sipping nectar, fuel for the long trek to Mexico.
