Compass Plant


Compass Plant

Another interesting plant in the Silphium genus, having many of the same attributes of the cup plant and the rosin weed. Compass plant gets its name from the leaf tips generally pointing north/south once the leaves become full size- early expeditions in Kentucky and Ohio mentioned this point. This plant is also very attractive to a multitude of insects and is palatable to livestock as well. Flowering from late June to August it also makes a great summertime cut flower.
