The mystery plant for September
is not overly common in RI.
  It grows often, but not always, in wet soil.
This plant grows from 3-4 feet tall.
The infloresence consists
of a head of 10-15 yellow ray flowers
along the outer edge and
numerous disk flowers in the center.
Each of the ray flowers is three toothed.
The leaf bases extend down the stem
thus forming wings.
