Tall Hairy Agrimony - Agrimonia gryposepala
The Tall Hairy Agrimony is a native plant that has 5-parted yellow flowers that are about 1/4" wide arranged on an interrupted cluster on spike-like racemes.
Tall Hairy Agrimony is one of those flowers that is easy to walk by. Alone, like Pointed-leaf Tick-trefoil (which it often shares the same habitat), Tall Hairy Agrimony is easy to miss. But, as a collective, Tall Hairy Agrimony along with plants like Pointed-leaf Tick-trefoil create a floating impressionistic carpet of color above a sea of green (natures pointillism).
Other names: Common Agrimony.
Bloom: June - September.
