Chrysopsis mariana, known as the Maryland golden-aster, is a North American species of plants in the sunflower family. The Maryland golden-aster ranges from Rhode Island and New York, west to Kentucky and southern Ohio, and south as far as Florida and Texas.
Compared to other asters, the Maryland golden-aster has broader leaves and larger flowers. Because of its silky stems, the Maryland golden-asters are also known as silkgrass. Like its relatives the Prairie golden-aster and the Grass-leaved golden-aster, the Maryland golden-aster blooms only from August to October. The Maryland golden-aster grows one to two feet tall.
