Sharon, another great story. I purchased solidago last year at Plant Delights Nursery in Apex and have it in my Asheville garden. I think it's lovely in fall with the blue asters.

Thanks, Angie...again nice to hear from you. And I am glad you enjoy it with the blue asters. I have always thought they belong together, just like my Ninna told me.

Thank you, Jaye. Glad you enjoyed.
I especially like the legend of the two little girls.

We have several varieties of GR growing on our property (don't ask me which). The only person I know of allergic to it was the Dad of one of our daughter's friends. He would get a rash on his arms from it, true about not having pollen spread by wind.

Iris, yes...a lot of people get rashes from the leaves or stems of plants, always unique to the individual.

It is a lovely plant, one I always enjoy seeing in late fall.

Thank you for writing.

great one Shar. I'll just leave it to you (and Aunt Bett & Ninna) from now on to make my wish list for me, then tell me why I want that plant and what I can do with it. I swear each time I'm out at the nursery I see the plant you just wrote about. Do you plan this?

thanks, soulja!
Maybe it's just a seasonal coincidence.
