Easily recognized as the tall, thin, yellow flowered plants that sway in the breeze in almost every field of the United States.(Solidago), Goldenrod often gets overlooked on flower hikes by individuals looking for flashier flowers.
The same can not be said for insects in the vicinity. Goldenrod attracts many different insects from butterflies to beetles.
Approximately seventy five different goldenrod species (Solidago) can be found in the United States. Giant Goldenrod (Solidago gigantea) is the state flower for Kentucky and Nebraska.
