Re: Plant ID help please

Thanks Chris.  Good suggestion, but I don't know.  I don't think I mentioned
bloom time which I believe was some time this summer.  Will have to recheck
that with the MG who sent me the pics.   Also, this is on the edge of a
prairie garden, out in bright sun.  H. villosa, Hairy Alumroot I've read
prefers stream beds and such.  And the pics I just saw of it on the
Vanderbilt.edu site show a very different kind of flower.

So I checked H. richardsonii while I was at it and I think that just might
be right.  Besides, H. richardsonii IS Prairie Alumroot.  Would make sense
that some MG may have plunked it in years ago when the prairie was first
developed before we got to be sticklers about things being labeled.
