Silphium laciniatum

This big Silphium laciniatum is on the trail between South 9th St. and Beck Lane. No doubt this Silphium was introduced here along with the other typical prairie plants when they created the public trail. Pictures taken July 16, 2009.

As you can see much of the land along the trail is wasted by senseless mowing. Some people just gotta mow stuff down somewhere. The paved trail is plenty wide for access and having it unmowed to the edge of the pavement would be an improvement and save money too.
