Native to North America

Probably better known as Goldenrod, this tough woody plant is found in meadows, pastures, and roadside ditches along the highways all over North America. Its name is a combination of two Latin words, which include ‘solido’ that means "to strengthen or make whole," and ‘ago’ which is translated as "to make." Solidago is a member of the Aster family. Some parts of Goldenrod can be cooked and eaten or made into a tea for health purposes. Some believe that Goldenrod is a good luck plant, but most Americans simply consider the plant to be a weed. Some species introduced in Europe have become invasive. Honey is often made from Goldenrod and is dark in color and strong. As the popular name suggests, the flowers of the Solidago are golden in color, and the slender stems sport clusters of the yellow blooms. Thomas Edison attempted to produce rubber from the Goldenrod plant and met with some success. Although his Goldenrod rubber actually was made into tires for a Model-T that he got from friend Henry Ford, the process was abandoned after Edison’s death.

In looking at its Latin name, it’s clear that its medicinal uses were recognized early one. These healthful benefits range from kidney tonics to cold remedies and even a treatment for snake bites. The Goldenrod is the state flower for both Kentucky and Nebraska. It was once the state flower of Alabama, but it was replaced by the Camellia. Goldenrod has recently been named the state flower of South Carolina, and the Sweet Goldenrod is the state herb of Delaware. The yellow blossoms are suitable for dry arrangements. They are often seen as filler within a table centerpiece, a wedding bouquet, or a flower arrangement.

Growing Recommendations - Solidago

A Solidago seed can be grown from seed scattered before the last frost of spring or toward the fall months. The Solidago likes sun and well-drained soil. Keeping the plants watered and the soil moist is important. Also, these plants may require staking when they get tall. They should be cut back to the ground in the fall and should be divided every three years to promote healthy growth. The Solidago blooms from late summer to fall, so it can be enjoyed for just a few months out of each year. Once it is cut, it typically lasts for between seven and ten days as part of a floral arrangement.
