Canada Goldenrod (Solidago Canadensis)


Rhizomatous, herbaceous perennial with multiple nodding stems bearing profuse yellow plumes to 6 feet. All zones. Native to the eastern and southern US. Produces large quantities of aromatic leaves and flowers. Urinary demulcent, anti-inflammatory and diuretic. Excellent choice for treating urinary tract infection and pain in the urinary tract. Aromatic. Make a tea out of the dried leaves and flowers, or make a tincture out of the fresh leaves and flowers. Plant prefers full sun and moist soils. Typically not planted in garden settings because of its spreading rhizomatous growth. Plants grow as somewhat unexceptional mounds of green foliage until the flowers explode into bloom in late summer. Naturalize in meadows.
