Golden Alexander

Zizia aurea, Golden Alexander, at Celery Bog Park. This is in an open area near the entrance drive, there seems to be a lot of this plant in this area. Golden Alexander is a native wildflower but doesn't seem too common elsewhere, I will guess that it was spread here intentionally by the park as part of a restoration project.

This Golden Alexander is in the butterfly garden adjacent to the Celery Bog Nature Center and is certainly intentionally planted here.
