Description

Also known as Upland White Goldenrod as per its reclassification as solidago ptarmicoides, this plant is found scattered across much of the central and eastern portions of North America. Its white, aster like flower can be found in bloom from August- September before giving way to small clusters of seeds. The foliage resembles that of goldenrod and can be difficult to distinguish prior to flowering. This perennial prefers dry, well drained soils and full sunlight which it receives in the upland habitats that it occupies. Relatively short in growing height, 1-2 feet, it can be utilized in native landscaping and butterfly gardens where shorter plants are needed.
