Notable Features: Tall thimbleweed has long-lasting, off-white flowers. The thimble-like seed heads are ornamental, becoming fluffy when they disperse their seed. This is one of the BEST plants to collect seeds from, their seedheads are the most pillowy-soft clouds of wonderfulness. And obviously you’re going to collect the seeds and spread them around to other areas of your property or share them with a friend. This makes them fun multi-season plants of interest. Tall thimbleweed prefers open woods and clearings, making them a wonderful addition to any recently restored oak savanna or partly sunny garden.
Attracts: Small bees and flowerflies visit the flowers occasionally for pollen. Bee visitors include Plastererbees (Colletes spp.) and Halictid bees (Halictus spp., Lasioglossumspp., etc.). Usually left alone by deer and rabbits.
