  • Physical Characteristics: Height: Compass plant is a tall plant, typically reaching heights of 5 to 10 feet (1.5 to 3 meters). Leaves: The most distinctive feature of the compass plant is its deeply lobed, coarse leaves, which are arranged in a basal rosette. The leaves are often oriented in a north-south direction, giving rise to the common name "compass plant."
  • Habitat and Range: Natural Habitat: Compass plants are commonly found in prairies, open woodlands, and savannas. They prefer well-drained soils and are well-adapted to the often-dry conditions of the central and eastern parts of North America.
  • Flowering and Inflorescence: Flowers: The compass plant produces yellow, daisy-like flowers with a central disk and ray florets. The flowers are borne on a tall, branching stem. Blooming Period: The flowering period typically occurs in mid to late summer, adding a burst of color to the prairie landscape.
  • Adaptations to Harsh Environments: Deep Roots: One of the notable adaptations of compass plants is their deep taproots, which can extend several meters into the soil. This adaptation helps them access water from deeper layers, allowing them to survive in drought-prone environments.
  • Leaf Orientation: The leaves of the compass plant are known to align themselves in a north-south direction, presumably to reduce water loss through transpiration by minimizing sun exposure to their surfaces.
  • Ecological Importance: Wildlife Habitat: Compass plants provide habitat and food for various wildlife species. The flowers attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies, while the seeds are consumed by birds.

Care Instructions

Different plants have different watering needs. Check the soil moisture by inserting your finger about an inch into the soil. If it feels dry, water the plant until the water drains from the bottom of the pot. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot.
