Goldenrods Deserve Some Respect!

We couldn't have said it better than Sandra Mason U. of IL Extension Office in her online Homeowner's Column (9/15/01):  

"Goldenrod is the "Rodney Dangerfield" of the plant world. It gets no respect.  Could be it is just too common since some species are found growing in ditch banks or it maybe its lovelessness is due to its misguided association with hay fever.  Ragweed that blooms at the same time as goldenrod is the actual culprit in hay fever problems."

(Our note:  Goldenrod is not wind pollinated so it CAN'T cause hay fever.  Ragweed is wind pollinated and it the culprit.)

Because it's a Native and many species are seen growing in the wild, it seems too common in the US.  Not true in Europe, however, where it's a 'Must Have' and gets 'The Respect It Deserves'!  Give the following a second thought!  They're great Butterfly attractors and superb, superb cut flowers.

Solidago comes from Latin words which means "I make whole", reference to it's long history of medicinal uses!
