Riddell's Goldenrod

Solidago riddellii


This goldenrod species is a somewhat rare native perennial which occurs only in wet meadows. Features tiny, bright yellow flowers borne in dense, erect, flat-topped, terminal, corombose inflorescences atop stiff, glabrous stems typically growing 3-4' tall. Flowers bloom late summer to early autumn. Narrow, lance-shaped, linear leaves. Goldenrods have been wrongly accused of causing hay fever which is actually an allergic reaction to wind-borne pollen from other plants such as ragweed. Attractive to bees and butterflies.
