This is Yellow Crownbeard, Verbesina occidentalis, a member of the Asteraceae family. Didn’t I announce that with authority? The Deers have a new member. She loves Radnor and photography, talks about interesting things, has a great sense of humor, AND….she is a walking, talking plant identification expert! We have repeated over and over that she fits into our group on any one of her many admirable qualities, but that last one cinches the deal! See her beautifully illustrated and informative garden blog, Clay and Limestone.
