Remarks :

Also know as, "Baldwin ironweed" and "Western ironweed". The common name of "Ironweed" relates to the toughness of the stems, which are very difficult to cut or pull out of the ground.

This plant is very bitter and is not consumed by cattle, but sheep will eat it. Of little value to wildlife.
