Plant of the Month - Goldenrod

Goldenrods are often mistakenly blamed as the cause of hay fever - an allergic reaction to wind-borne pollen. But they, and most native wildflowers, do not have wind-borne pollen. Instead, the pollen is moved from bloom to bloom by bees, butterflies and other pollinators. Goldenrod flowers provide nectar and pollen late in the season for a vast array of insects.
