Silphium terebinthinaceum


Prairie Rosinweed/Cup Plant

Large, sandpaper-like leaves mature in size in early summer followed by tall stalks with clusters of sweet, yellow, daisy-like flowers in late summer–a late bloomer compared to other silphiums.

Excellent mixed with prairie grasses in meadow and native gardens. Bees and goldfinches are frequent customers. Very long-lived with a deep taproot, so plant thoughtfully.

Full sun. Very tall–3-10′. Spread 1-3′. Deer, rabbit, and drought tolerant. NATIVE. Zones 4-8.
