The field goldenrod is a wildflower native to much of the US and Canada east of the Rockies. These exceptionally hardy plants grow well in poor, dry, sandy, rocky soils. They proliferate using rhizomes as well as seeds, and tend to dominate their surrounding environment. Field goldenrods bloom small, bright, yellow flowers clustered on one side of the arching grey-green stems beginning in late summer and continuing throughout the fall. These flowers are highly attractive to an assortment of pollinators.
