With dense, wandlike inflorescences of golden yellow, this is a beauty of a goldenrod. We first met the wand-like goldenrods in upstate NY, growing picturesquely in sandy rocky exposures and finally, many years later, found a perfect wild seed source for this plant in New Jersey. A terrific plant for late season bee forage and beneficial insects.
