Golden Groundsel (Packera obovata)
This is just a theory, but we’re thinking the Green Bay Packers might have gotten inspiration for their color scheme (and name) from green, gold and lovely Packera obovata Fact check: The team was actually named after a packing company sponsor, and “Packera” refers to Canadian botanist John G. Packer. Nonetheless, you’ll find plenty of gardening motivation in the cute, asterisk-like flowers of golden groundsel, not to mention its handsome basal foliage — large, spoon-shaped leaves with toothed edges — and tall, slender stems. Golden groundsel thrives in shady, moist environments such as meadows and wooded banks, but it will tolerate drier situations as well. And this pollinator-supporting perennial certainly has team spirit: Plant it en masse to add a golden glow to woodland gardens in springtime.
