Flowery Friday.

Goldenrod BW FP Normandeau

Another “post-flowery” Flowery Friday…this is one of my favourite autumn bloomers, wild Solidago, gone to seed and found on the shoreline of Winchell Lake (near Water Valley, Alberta).  Every year, I say I’m going to plant goldenrod in my garden, but once again, I’ve just passed another growing season without it.  Next year, for sure!

(We’ll see).

Do you grow goldenrod, or are you in the camp that dislikes it?  Some goldenrod species (such as S. canadensis) are considered invasive in some regions – is that the case where you live?
