Packera obovata formerly Senecio obovatus) is prettier than its name sounds. This late Spring wildflower grows in moist woods throughout the eastern US. The multi-flowered stems are much higher than the early Spring wildflowers, creating an eye-catching display. Like other wildflowers in Kalamazoo, it seems to be blooming early this year.
Only the leaves at the bottom of the plant (the basal leaves) are round. The leaves higher on the stem are longer and almost feathery.
