Please help me identify this plant

pamronSeptember 11, 2013

Hello Everyone,

I was wondering if someone could help me identify this plant. I find it very beautiful. It just started blooming in the last couple of weeks. It is about knee high and kind of grow out like a circle if that makes any sense. It is covered in little flowers and I love it. I think it must be a perennial because I did not plant it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Pam

Second vote for sunflower. It's an annual altho' I think there are perennial cultivars available. Not all sunflowers grow 12 ft. tall. Yours could have self seeded.

Hi there,
I think the foliage looks wrong for a garden variety sunflower, aka Helianthus annuus). Goin by the small lanceolate foliage I would guess it is some perennial Helianthus (no clue, are there native annual sunflowers over there?...). That it grows at the water's edge is somewhat unusual. Is it a creek or rather pond? Sometimes Jerusalem Artichokes get washed downstream, or rather bits of their rhizomes.

Well, curious, let's see what pops up,

Bye, Lin

Maybe it's a Swamp Sunflower (Angustifolius).
They are native to Georgia. The leaves look similar and yours is by a pond.
It's pretty and probably good forage.
