A 3 foot tall member of the Biden family, nodding bur marigold is found widely distributed across North America. An annual, it reseeds itself in the wet areas that it thrives so well in. Beautiful yellow flowers can be seen blooming from August-October. The seeds, often called sticktights, are burred to allow attachment to passing clothes and fur as a mode of dispersal.
