Gray Goldenrod

Radial cluster of gray-green basal leaves that puts up a slender, upright stem with coarsely toothed leaves and spreading upper branches covered in flowers. Hundreds of tiny yellow flowers line the upper branches. The flowers are great pollinator attractors, and are often covered with insects when in bloom. Tiny seed heads follow the blooms in fall. Not as tall or as aggressive a spreader as other goldenrod species, this plant would be ideal for a smaller planting area.
