Verbesina es un genero americano de la tribu Heliantheae que comprende aproximadamente 300 especies distribuidas desde Canada hasta Argentina.
However, Helianthus maximilanii, Verbesina virginica and Viguiera dentata seeds requiring four to six weeks of low temperature treatment to break dormancy (Baskin et al.
It has been observed that herbaceous plants in the "low, wet woods" tend to grow no more than 1 m high (Phlox glaberrima, smooth phlox, is typical); those in the "low, dry woods" may reach slightly over 1 m (such as Verbesina helianthoides, yellow crownbeard); those in the "high, dry woods" may reach 2 m or more (Phytolacca americana is dominant and this area has been dubbed the "pokeweed forest").
Other species of note include Camassia scilloides, Chelone obliqua, Iris virginica, and Verbesina alternifolia, which all grow in dense, isolated patches.
