What Is This Yellow Wildflower From Kentucky?
[caption id="attachment_9311" align="alignright" width="112" caption="Type Of Helianthus"][/caption]
Ask the Expert:Yellow Wildflower - grows in Kentucky
This flower (I'm sorry the pick is somewhat past bloom) grows all along the farm - my friend believes it to be wild cosmos... and I didn't think there was a cosmos genus around here - could you help us out?
Thank you! Anne
Plant Expert Reply:
I believe it is a type of Helianthus.Â Kentucky has many wild species of Helianthus.Â My best guess would be one of the following: Helianthus hirsutus (Hairy Sunflower), Helianthus strumosus (Pale-leaved Woodland Sunflower) or Helianthus tuberosus (Jerusalem artichoke).Â Of course it is a little hard to tell without an open bloom.
