Solidago houghtonii, or Houghton's Goldenrod, is a rare plant, native only to the shores of northern Michigan Great Lakes, both on the Michigan side and the Canada side, and there is also a report or two from New York. It is a perennial that grows along the sandy shores and dunes of Lakes Michigan and Huron. It blooms in late summer with showy golden flowers.
There are over 100 species of Solidago in the United States, and they can be very difficult to tell apart. More information and comparison photos will be posted at a later time, showing similar species. But for the time being, you can access our Solidago ID chart which shows various images of over twenty species to help with ID.
