Weeds are flowers too once you get to know them .A.A.Milne
So the botanical name sounds quite grand but calling this attractive plant a weed seems unfair. It is native to central and eastern North America. It is a tall beauty in my garden and I see it every day from the kitchen dining table. So I guess A.A. Milne was right. It is a flower, now that I know it, and it is a loved flower.

Having now moved it up from Weed to Flower I think it qualifies for Cee’s Flower of the Day challenge.
