Goldenrod (Solidago caesia)
Genus:  Solidago
In early autumn, this species produces elegant, wand-shaped flowerheads atop wiry stems with blue-green, linear leaves. It is found in open woods and along woodland edges, and prefers some shade. It responds well to rich soil, but can tolerate dry soil also. 
Noteworthy Characteristics:  Solidago reliably provides end-of-season color in blazing shades of yellow to the wild garden or naturalistic plantings. 
Care:  Grow in lean to moderately fertile, well-drained soil in full sun; some species prefer shade. Deadhead to prevent prolific self-seeding.
Propagation:  Divide in spring or fall.
Problems:  Spot anthracnose, powdery mildew, rust, fungal spots.
