Pugent Sound Gumweed is a member of the sunflower family. The flower heads are covered with a resinous substance. Thrives in clay soils and readily self-sows.  Because it is one of the few flowers that blooms up until November, it is a good source of pollen for butterflies, bees and other insects. 

Planting instructions: For general ground prep (click here.) Plant 1/4-1/2 inch deep. 

Gumweed does not bloom until the second year. The picture to the left is an example of what the first year growth looks like. 

Gumweed oozes a sticky white residue.
