found this bush-plant/ shrub on my second day in Shelby Farms Park. the yellow flowers were glowing against the dark/ green background. it was an eye-catcher. the height of the plant was around 4 feet. the stems were not much rigid. bending due to the weight of these leaves and flowers. i searched for its ID, but all in vain. can someone please help me with it? am truly eager to know.

thanks for viewing.

Hello Ruby,
Looks like a type of Goldenrod to me. It seem to grow everywhere this time of year.

beautiful closeup of the flower. good lighting and presentation. tfs.

Ciao Ruby, lovely composition with nice flower, wonderful colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Ruby

Your photo made me curious because these flowers look so similar to the yellow flowers which make up the backbone of a lot of our Indian flower Bouquets. A quick search on flowers of India reveals that these are either Common Goldenrod or Giant Goldenrod..And no wonder introduced to India from America :)
