    Default Is this goldenrod??

    I know it is probably hard to tell, but can anyone tell me if this is goldenrod?




    Here is another pic that shows all of the dead stalks from last year.



    I was thinking of planting something for my bees, but I currently have several acres of this.. whatever it is..

    Thanks.

    Looks like broom sage to me. Does it produce a wind born fluffy seed that clogs up the radiator of your tractor. Not sure broom sage makes it to NC

    Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I am very familiar with broom sage.. but that's not what this is. This is a leafier plant (as seen in the first pic), that did bloom.. but I can't remember if it was yellow or white.

    This is broom sage:

    It's not goldenrod. The growth habit is all wrong, but I don't know what it is yet.

    Thanks for your input. I really don't know what it is. I came across this picture on wikipedia, and thought "now that looks really familiar". But I don't remember exactly what it looked like. Before I got bees, it was just some weed.. now I am re-thinking its usefulness.

    It is also my understanding that there are all different varieties of goldenrod.

    WallieBee is correct; Goldenrod is more individual stalks that do not branch (except at the top when it flowers).

    Maybe try to google 'meadowsweet.' It can take on many different colors and forms.

    Nope, it is not the goldenrod. Goldenrod more of a single growing plant. Some are short and some are tall plants.
    Right now they are growing in single plant form. The rootlets spread underground to bring up new plants the next
    growing season.
