Found throughout the eastern ¾ of the United States, false boneset inhabits the dry soils of upland prairies where it can grow 1-3 feet in height to compete with taller grass species. It is often seen in overgrazed pastures due to its lower feed value and bitter taste. Its deep taproot, sometimes reaching 17 feet in depth, allows this perennial to be drought tolerant and grow in a wide variety of soil types. Its white flower can be seen blooming from August-October before being replaced with white globular seed heads. False boneset is has alternate leaves and should not be mistaken for tall boneset that has opposite leaves.
