Wildflower identification

Asked September 26, 2018, 1:14 PM EDT

Can you please help me identify this wildflower I took a picture of for a HS project. I believe it is a Joe Pye weed. Thanks. Also, can you confirm that a cat-tail and a dandelion are considered wildflowers. Thanks

Good evening,
You are right as the picture you sent is of Joe Pye Weed. Cattails are considered a wildflower, but Dandelions are a weed.
Thank you for using Ask an Expert.
