A beautiful species, with handsome, fern-like leaves, found in dry woods and thickets mostly along the Atlantic Coast States, during August and September. It is an annual or biennial plant, and is rather sticky, hairy and much-branched. The very leafy, round, slender stalk grows from one to four feet high. The soft, downy, light green leaves are set in pairs upon the stalk. They are deeply cleft into many-toothed lobes, and are usually stemless and broadest at the base. The classic calyx matches the leaves, and the beautiful, light yellow, tubular flowers resemble those of the Downy False Foxglove. The bell-shaped corolla, however, is particularly hairy and sticky on the outside. The flowers are set on short, curving stems that spring from the axils of the leaves. They are frequently arranged in pairs toward the ends of the branches. This species is partly parasitic, and often its own roots clasp themselves, as well as those of other plants from which they absorb nourishment. The flowers and foliage droop miserably when plucked, and are difficult to revive. They are found from Maine and Ontario, to Minnesota, south to Florida and Missouri.
