I have been unable to find anyone who knows what this wildflower is. The plant is tall and slim with few branches, the stem and branches are sort of woody and the part that holds the flower (and looks like hens&chicks) is very stiff. I am new and this is my first post (yay me ?) so I appreciate any help. Thanks!

Hi, and welcome to ATP! Looks like Greater Tickseed to me.

Greater Tickseed (Coreopsis major)

Appears to be a Silphium, but I can't see the leaves clearly enough to say which one, but it could be Rough-stem Rosinweed (Silphium radula).

I agree with Kent. It looks like a Silphium species. Do you have more photos with leaves? Where was the photo taken?

*Blush* I should have recognized that as Silphium, we have a couple that grow here in Florida.

Ditto on silphium...
