ABSTRACT
The article features two plant species of the North American genus Zizia which includes the golden Alexanders and the heart-leaved Alexanders, abundant across eastern North America and south from Florida to Texas, entering South Dakota. It states that the species are easily distinguished by their basal leaves and produce umbels of bright yellow flowers that grow into fruits called schizocarps. It reports that David Mushet of the Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center assigned a ranking of "C-value of eight", indicating that Zizia is a rare specie.
