Packera aurea

Golden groundsel

Packera aurea is a flowering plant native to the southeast, although largely absent in the southernmost states along the coastal plain. It is naturally found in moist to wet forests, and grows well in full sun to part shade. It has round basal leaves that are present throughout the year, and it sends up a flowering stalk in early spring. The flowers are small, bright yellow, and daisy-like. They attract pollinators, and the seeds produced later draw in birds. Packera aurea is a great specimen plant in a yard, or for use in restoration projects.
