Names of a Plant

Anonymous added on August 21, 2013 | Answered

I'm trying to find the name of a plant. The only thing I can remember is that it began with Southern. It is a large soft-leaf plant that grows fragile looking stems (that wave in the wind) that have groupings all up the stem of small tiny flowers (mine are light yellow). It comes back every year. Where can I find the name - just the common name?

If this list doesn't help, take samples to your local agricultural extension office for identification.

Without knowing which zone you are in, it's difficult to narrow the search.
