Grass-leaved Goldenrod (Euthamia graminifolia)
A thin leaved goldenrod of medium height that prefers moist soils, but tolerates some dryer conditions and drought! Individual blooms are smaller than other goldenrods but appear similar as they bloom in bunches. Thin leaves result in a pleasant texture that adds variety to plantings. Like all goldenrods, it supports many pollinators and host insects.
Spreads rapidly by runners in moist, disturbed conditions. Excellent for erosion control or introduction to sites were there is more root competition.
