Ironweed, Veronia species of flowers.

Veronia Noveboracensis known as New York Ironweed is the one I am familiar with. Most of the Veronia species contain Vernolid A which has been shown to inhibit cincer. V Noveboracensis does not contain as much as the others. This is the only species I have seen in person.

Veronia Amygdalina and V. Cinerea were the most potent of the Veronia species.

Have not seen toxicity studies on the other Veronia species but V. Cinerea shows no toxicity.
