Zizia aurea is more commonly known as "Golden Alexander" for its flat-topped clusters of sulfur-yellow blooms in late spring. Butterflies flock to this plant, and it is the larval host of Black Swallowtails.
Zizia aurea Golden Alexander is native to much of North America. It prefers moist to wet, well-draining soils but is drought-tolerant once established. It may self-sow where happy.
