    Bidens vulgata, or Tall Beggarticks, is native to almost the entire United States, but is not reported from Utah, Arizona, Texas, Louisiana or Florida. It is an annual that grows in open, moist soil of fields, meadows, in open woods, prairies, along roadsides and railroads and in ditches and along shorelines. It blooms from mid to late summer into fall, with yellow-green flowers.

    This plant looks similar to some other members of the genus. More information will be posted at a later time about differentiating other species.
