|Plant Id Hi I noticed this plant in three places in the yard. What is it ? thanks a lot |

|It's a type of Spanish Needles, I think it's Devil's Beggartick (Bidens frondosa), but there are some other similar species.|

|Agree with Bidens frondosa, lacking in ray florets.|

|Thank you. I wonder if it's edible for rabbits I'm going to have to do some weeding soon|

|Bidens tripartita or also two teeth|
It is a persistent weed seeds have two arrows, and Pierce to clothing

|Not only would Bidens frondosa be a good Rabbit food, it is good for human folks in salads or as a cooked vegetable (flowers & young leaves).|
Medicinally, the plant is a broad spectrum antibiotic ( gram - & gram +). Topically it will fight infections better than any store bought medication (used fresh).
It is a weedy inclusion in a garden, but if you have room for it, it is good medicine!

|And a great nectar source for all manner of pollinators not to mention the Monarch butterflies get sustenance from it during their migration.|
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
