Heart-leaved Alexander

Zizia aptera

Heart-leaved Alexander or Meadow Parsnip, is a Midwest native perennial. This wildflower occurs most often in small colonies in dry woods, glades and prairies. Flat-topped clusters of tiny yellow flowers bloom in late spring to early summer atop stems. The simple, heart-shaped basal leaves best distinguish this species from the similar, Golden Alexander, Zizia aurea, and give rise to the common name.
