Marais de Génonville - Natural site protected by the Conservatory of natural areas of Picardy. This plant native to North America and belonging to the family of Daisies (Asteraceae) is also called Gerbe-d'Or or Solidage Canada. Species introduced in Europe used since the 17th century as an ornamental garden plant, this honey plant has spread widely spreading by the wind.
