Erect Goldenrod

Radial clump of rounded dark green basal leaves with a tall slender stalk topped with hundreds of tiny flowers. The flowers are bright yellow and line the stalks, giving the plant the appearance that it has been frosted with yellow icing from a distance. The flowers are great pollinator attractors, and the plant is often covered with insects when in bloom. Tiny seed heads follow the flowers in fall. Spreads by root suckering and forms attractive stands about 3 feet tall.
