Notes: Bidens cernua (Nodding Bur Marigold) – An annual characteristic of mudflats around ponds and drawdown areas in wetlands, nodding bur marigold germinates as the water recedes in early summer, growing 1 to 2 feet in height before covering itself in yellow blossoms in late August and September. The seed are the well-known 2-pronged stick-tights. In a restoration, sow the seeds along the typical waterline in ponds and wetlands.
