|Summer has just worn itself out here in Southern Ontario. The goldenrod is blazing, the leaves are falling, autumn is here!|
Goldenrod has been unjustly blamed for the torments of hayfever. The true culprits are ragweed and other wind-pollinated plants. Goldenrod pollen is too heavy to be carried by the wind. It is spread by insects.
Tall Goldenrod (Solidago altissima) grows from 2 to 8 feet tall, flowerheads golden, in arching spikes that form pyramid at top of downy stem; leaves lance shaped, rough textured. Habitat: fields prairies, ditches, clearings. In bloom August to November. Overcast day.
