  • Regular price $ 11.49


Silphium integrifolium (Rosinweed) is one of the mainstays of the tallgrass prairie! Rosinweed is named after the plant's sticky rosin once used by Native Americans as chewing gum, but from me, I'm fine "sticking" with my modern-day gum :) Reaching around five feet high, a loose cluster of yellow daisy-like flowers forms on single stems beginning in June that tower over the prairie. It thrives in prairie situations in almost any soil and one establish they are extremely drought tolerant. Silphium integrifolium contains seeds that are very attractive to goldfinches and its flowers are attractive to a wide variety of pollinator species.
