Prairie Dock

Silphium terebinthinaceum

In late summer, this robust perennial blooms with sunflower-like yellow flowers on eight foot tall stalks. Prairie Dock's big, bold, basal leaves grow 24-36 inches tall and make this a worthy addition to the landscape even without the summer blooms. The foliage and flowers of Prairie Dock are wonderful for arrangements while the seedheads attract finches and other songbirds.

Sturdy plant is dramatic focal point
Late summer color
Foliage is impressive even without flowers
