Solidago odora, or Sweet Goldenrod, is native to most of the southeastern half of the United States. It is a perennial that grows in dryish sandy open woods, along trails, in thickets, on cliffs and bluffs and along roadsides. It blooms in late summer and early fall with golden yellow 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.
