Description & Identification

Compound leaves are pinnately arranged, in which large leaflets alternate with small ones.

Habitat

The common name "Roadside agrimony" can be somewhat misleading; although this plant can occur along roadsides, it is more frequent in natural areas, including open woodlands, woodland edges, streambanks, lake shores, open floodplains, and swamps. Prefers slightly less wet conditions than A. parviflora.

Uses

Sometimes cultivated in gardens, where it is valued for its slightly showier flowers than some Agrimonia species,
