Butterfly Host Plant for the Ozark Swallowtail Butterfly

Zizia aptera like most wildflowers has several common names including Golden Alexander, Heartleaf Alexander, Meadow Zizia and Heart-leaved Meadow Parsnip.  Native Zizia aptera plants have several 1-1/2 inch clusters of small bright yellow flowers growing in an open mounded form with lush, heart shaped foliage that is attractive all summer.  Zizia aptera is a butterfly host plant for the Missouri Woodland Swallowtail butterfly.  Golden Alexander grows best in humus-rich, average to moist soil in partial shade to full sun and is ideal to plant near a garden path or in the front of a perennial border where it can be enjoyed all season.
