Agrimony, hairy

Agrimonia griposepala
An up to 5’ more or less spreading plant. The stem is branched and hairy. The leaves are pinnately compound and the oval leaflets are toothed. There are 1-3 pairs of much smaller leaves between the larger pairs. The yellow, 5-petalled flowers are in spikes that often droop. The fruit is bristly and hooked. Blooms July to August in roadsides, tree lines, thickets.

Similar to Small-flowered agrimony (A. parviflora) but the latter is more erect and has erect flower spike, and the leaves are narrower and more numerous.
