Native to Florida, and found only in that state.
An uncommon wildflower found in disturbed sites and along roadsides. This is a perennial that reproduces from seeds.
Mature plants may get to 2 feet tall, with at least the upper half composed of the leafless, hairy stem that terminates with a single flower. Most of the leaves are basal, with a few single leaves arising along the lower stem. Leaves also are hairy and up to 5 inches long. The margins are deeply wavy, giving the appearance of several lobes to the elongate leaf. The large yellow flower has 8 ray petals that have a notch at their tip, and often the bases are separated from each other. The disc flowers are green, and as the flower matures it droops dramatically to face the ground.
