Butterflies and bees love this fall blooming golden-flowered native perennial. Birds love the seeds. It spreads quickly to fill gaps in the garden, but it is shallow-rooted and easy to contain. It can grow waist-high, but if you cut the longer stems to the ground periodically, can be kept much shorter. It thrives in full sun to part shade, in wet to dry soils. Growing in sand dunes and edges of salt marshes, it tolerates salt spray and occasional salt flooding. Deer will browse it occasionally, but not enough to do any damage. Indeed, in most gardens, it can be used as a “deer baffle” to protect more sensitive plantings. If you kill it, you’ve got talent.
