Giant Goldenrod (Solidago gigantea)

A related species of plant: Canada Goldenrod (Solidago canadensis)

North America.

It typically thrives in open, sunny habitats such as prairies, meadows, and road or railroad sides, construction sites preferring well-drained soils.

This perennial plant has two strategies for distribute which are dangerous for native species: 1) by large flyable seed stock (up to 15,000 seeds/plant); 2) from small fragments steams which underground produce roots and shoots. Its rapid growth and dense stands decrease species richness and diversity.

Giant goldenrod features tall, erect stems reaching heights of up to 2.5 meters, adorned with narrow, lance-shaped leaves arranged alternately along the stem. In late summer and early fall, the plant produces clusters of bright yellow flowers arranged in elongated, branching inflorescences.
