Although this is a spring flowering native perennial, it's worth featuring this time of year for its fall foliage color.
The leaves and stems of Golden Alexander turn a bright maroon color in the fall giving it two seasons of interest.
A native of both sunny and shady sites, it prefers well drained soils that range from medium to moist conditions.
This native also falls in the Parsley or Carrot family (Apiaceae) and is a larval host to Swallowtail Butterflies.
Golden Alexanders are native to eastern North America. See map for range.
