(especially hirsutus and pauciflorus) and Verbesina helianthoides. Other characteristic species include Desmodium spp.
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").
These plants, which tend to reach 0.5-1.5 m in height, include Asclepias purpurascens (purple milkweed), Phryma leptostachya (lopseed), Porteranthus stipulatus (American ipecac or Indian physic), Ruellia strepens (wild petunia), Smilacina racemosa (false Solomon's seal), and Verbesina helianthoides (yellow crownbeard).
