Description

Solidago juncea is a robust species of goldenrod, with a stiff central, unbranched stem, that typically grows to a height of 4'. It produces large basal foliage, with lance-shaped leaves that can exceed 8" in length and 1 1/2" across. Further up the stem, the leaves become progressively smaller, and sparser. The plants produced terminal yellow flowers, tightly clustered around erect to arching stems, creating a fountain-like display.
