Agrimonia gryposepala, or Tall Agrimony, is native to central-midwestern US, as well as the Great Lakes area and the northeastern US, extending into the Appalachian area as well, and also in to part of the Western US. It is a perennial that grows in open woods, along woodland edges and in thickets.

This is a difficult genus, as most of the species look very similar. Agrimonia gryposepala tends to be a taller plant, and it also has short, glandular hairs on its flowering stalk. It also has a sparse covering of hairs on the stem, compared with other species. More information and photos to help with distinctions will follow soon.
