Goldenrod (Solidago) ~ LuminEarth’s How to Identify Wild Edible & Medicinal Plants
There are more than 20 species in our area (Tennessee) and many of the species hybridize, increasing the diversity of size and shape. Luckily, goldenrods are recognizable to everyone at the generic level. Goldenrods are perennial herbs with dens cluster heads of yellow flowers that bloom from mid-summer to frost. The heavy pollen of the goldenrods does not carry far in the air, so it does not often cause hay fever. (Hay fever is usually caused by ragweed, which blooms at the same time.)
