Positive chiron On Sep 18, 2006, chiron from Midland, MI (Zone 5b) wrote:

My only experience with this plant is seeing it in bloom in the local woods. It is very attractive, differing from the typical goldenrod in growth habit. The flowers are carried along the stem in the leaf axils. They are a rich golden yellow against dark green leaves and a bluish stem. The plant is much more subdued in structure than other goldenrods, and seems to grow well in shady conditions. I hoped to collect some seed and try growing in my shady garden. I will followup with my results.
