Annuals-Perennials Trees Shrubs Bulbs Vines Cactus Water Plants

Cup plant flower (Silphium perfoliatum).

A native of the tallgrass prairie in the Midwest, USA, this perennial giant sports wonderfully yellow daisy-like flowers on long, stout stalks reaching up to 8' in height! Cup Plant, is named because its large broad leaves form a "cup" where they attach to the square stem. These cups catch and retain water for plants.
