Default Tall Ohio Wildflower?



What's this, looks a little coneflower-ish and a little ironweed-ish.

Central Ohio, it's been out for a month, grows very tall sometimes
(say 8 feet), found in sunny roadside waste areas.

It takes the place of goldenrod until the goldenrod comes out.

Looks good, thanks.

Oddly it's on a page of Newcomb's wildflower guide that I had examined,
but the illustration he has is so unlike it that I didn't match it over
the years. The question would come up each year.

Yes, page 376 I would guess ;-)

Never seen it around my area, but it looks a bit similar to
Jerusalem Artichoke (which we do have). I didn't think it
looked quite right for that though, so I had to look up JA
again to see that it wasn't. As long as I had the book in my
hand I just paged backward a bit till I got to the
"alternate leaves" entries in same...

I usually look in Newcomb's first, then Peterson's, then I
punt to the more difficult books to use in my possession for
ID purposes. It isn't a question of whether I have it in a
book or not, but rather finding it. I'm not the best trying
to use the more technical keys.
