Sweet Goldenrod (Solidago odora)

  •  I’m a NY native, but technically not native to our region.


    I attract butterflies, bees and birds.


    I’m a clump forming goldenrod.


    I have anise scented leaves for which I am known.


    My leaves can be used in teas and have been used for medicinal purposes such as wounds, ulcers, urinary disorders, flatulence and as a stimulant. *
