A frequent perennial of marshes, wet flatwoods and disturbed sites throughout most of Florida north of Lake Okeechobee. Present in all of the southeastern United States, west to Texas, Oklahoma and Missouri, north into Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York.
Flowers are terminal on long slender stalks with 8 to 21 yellow ray florets, appearing in summer and fall. The disks are purple and flattened with yellow and/or reddish-brown florets. The rough, sessile, linear to lanceolate leaves are opposite low on the stem and alternate upward with revolute margins.
