Description

Glabrous perennial from a creeping rhizome, 2-9 dm. tall.

Leaves tending to be triple-nerved, the basal ones oblanceolate, up to 30 cm. long and 3 cm. wide, the others smaller and becoming sessile upward.

Flowers arranged in long narrow panicles. Involucre 3-5 mm. high, pseudanthium made up of 7-13 ray florets and 8-13 disk florets, yellow.[1][2]

Bloom Period

Late June-October[1]

Distribution

East Cascades, and rarely on prairies on west Cascades, central BC to Oregon, east to Rocky Mountains, Great Plains, and Midwest.[3]

Habitat

Rather dry, open places, from the valleys and plains to fairly high elevations in the mountains.[3]

Uses

Gregory L. Tilford writes that the species within the Solidago genus may be used more or less interchangeably. He writes the greens can be eaten a cooked potherb, with variable palatibility, and the flowers make a nice sweetened tea. Dried leaves and flowers may be used as a styptic agent, and an infusion to reduce mucus production in the bronchi during a cold or flu. The tea is diuretic and regarded by him as a kidney tonic.[4]

Propagation

Plants established by seedlings can be started by sowing seed in containers in January and placed in a greenhouse. Seed should be covered lightly with soil and kept moist until germination. A layer of pea gravel can be applied to the soil surface to prevent seeds from floating. Seeds planted in this manner will begin germination about Day 7 and complete germination by Day 14. [5]
