Goldenrod is a very widespread perennial covering much of North America, USDA zones 1-11.

It was originally brought to America to use as a tea substitution during the revolutionary war.

Goldenrod does not cause allergic reactions as once thought.

It can be found growing in sunny open areas, roadsides, and hillsides.

It can become quite tall up to 4 with linear leaves along the stem.

The flowers are in plume like clusters of tiny yellow flowers that open in early fall.

It is a good plant for the wildflower meadow.
