I was out showing the woods today with a friend that has not been back in the woods for years. While on one of the further most trails we came across this most beautiful yellow wildflower. It was 4 to 5' tall with slender elongated leaves. Only one we saw over our 70 acre trip. Any suggestions?

I've wondered too what their called Ernie.  ???

In fact, I came across so many scattered about, that I took pictures to post last summer and then never did ask.

I'll bet its an easy one for @OneWithWood   ;)

Does look like something in the sunflower family. Try Jerusalem artichoke. I always have trouble getting all the yellow sunflower type flowers to species.

Probably woodland sunflower Helianthus divaricatus. Adubon's book has a poor picture of it.

This might help.

Now that you mention it, we have desert broom,  Baccharis sarothroides out here. If you found a really old one, you might be able to get a 3X3 maybe a foot or foot and a half long. ;D

They make me sneeze. >:(
