Grass-leaved goldenrod is native to eastern North America. It is a fantastic bee plant, swarmed with insects of all descriptions while in bloom. The color of the blossoms is the lighter canary yellow that some other goldenrods possess (e.g., gray goldenrod), rather than the darker, gold color of the more common goldenrods.

Grass-leaved goldenrod spreads aggressively by seed and rhizomes, so is really only appropriate for wild or naturalized areas.
