More About Solidago rigida

  • Velvety foliage is gray-green in the summer
  • Foliage will take on a dusky-rose colour in the fall
  • Bloom Time: August to September

Interesting Notes:

Goldenrod (Solidago) is unfairly blamed for being the source of pollen or allergens which affect those who suffer from hay fever. Pollen from goldenrod is too heavy to travel by air whereas ragweed pollen, which is released close in time to that of solidago, is easily carried and is the true source of this discomfort.
