e and cent US

A native wildflower of wetlands. The smooth, toothed, heart-shaped leaves form basal clumps. The abundant, bright golden-yellow, daisy-like flowers appear on in flat-topped clusters on upright stalks in late spring. One of the few daisy family plants that flowers in the spring, the brightness of its flowers lights up the landscape. Often grows in moist shade along wetland margins, or among rocks in streams. Prefers a moist or wet, fertile soil, but is otherwise very adaptable; does well in ordinary moist garden soil. Can serve as an excellent ground cover. The plant's alternate common name of squaw weed refers to its uses in treating women's complaints.
