Golden Alexander

Zizia aurea

Golden Alexander has pretty umbels of compound, golden yellow flower heads radiate on smooth, branched plants up to three feet tall. This striking member of the parsley family can be found from May to June along woodland borders and roadsides in our region. Golden Alexander is commonly found in moist prairie and along streams, this Golden Alexander is a better choice for rain gardens than its close relative, Heart-Leaved Alexander, or Meadow Parsnip, Zizia aptera, which is found in drier prairies.
