Compass Plant, Silphium laciniatum - Perennial-

A towering queen of the midwestern prairies related to sunflowers, they can grow to 8’ high and produce a profusion of small yellow flowers.  Used by native tribes as an expectorant for coughs.  The great Aldo Leopold once said, "What a thousand acres of Silphiums looked like when they tickled the bellies of the buffalo is a question never again to be answered, and perhaps not even asked."
