Wingstem Verbesina alternifolia

A native found on moist wooded slopes and open woodlands. Wingstem likes well-drained soils in full sun to part shade and is best in a native plant garden, wildflower meadow or cottage garden.

Excellent banner Moggs!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

thanks for introducing us to this very interesting & pretty plant!

Would still like to see your whole image of the plant & surroundings. Smiling

I don't know if it will grow well here, but always worth a try.
We have forsythia from my wife's home in Connecticut, and it's doing well after 15 yrs.

Wingstem grows tall, up to 10' (!), so we should be able to find a spot in our garden for it. Thumbs up

Wingstem images...

"The stem is usually unbranched, and the fast-growing plant
can eventually reach great heights– up to 8 or 10 feet."

Almost purchased from
($2 for unknown number of seeds, shipping $5)

Ordered instead from Everwilde Farms Inc on Amazon
400 seeds for $2.50 + $2.00 shipping.

I will happily share 20 seeds with anyone who sends me a treemail with their address. Smiling
