Cucumber-leaf sunflower, Helianthus debilis

This variety of H. debilis gets around a lot more than its beach-loving relatives. It may be found in CT, FL, GA, LA, MA, MD, ME, MI, NC, NH, PA, RI, SC, TX, VA, VT, and WV. Northward it is spread from cultivation, and not likely to persist. For example, it has been reported in Michigan from River Rouge in 1912, and East Lansing in 1923.
