Sicklepod
Senna obtusifolia* /Pea or Bean Family
(INN) Rank 3

This non-native wildflower would have been considered a "weed" by the folks whose garden it had invaded! It is easy to identify once the long fruits start to develop. This was found in late August in Oak Ridge. There is another wildflower called Sicklepod (Arabis canadensis), it is in the Mustard Family. This is why scientific names are so important!
Annual
Perennial
Where seen: Oak Ridge
