Starry Silphium is a 3' to 6' tall native perennial with native distribution primarily in the southeast. This is a coarse plant with rough opposite leaves and large 3" wide bright yellow sunflower-like flowers. It prefers dry to medium moisture soils, full sun or partial shade, and sandy well-drained soils. This plant is drought and fire tolerant and is often used in xeriscape plantings, native plant gardens, wildflower meadows, and conservation seed mixes. Like other Silphium species, it produces a rosin, or gummy sap, that is sometimes used like chewing gum. It is a good pollinator plant.
