Early Goldenrod

Early Goldenrod, Solidago juncea, is blooming now. The plant in my dry border is a volunteer, and it is thriving. It is a clump former, and not a root runner, and its leaves are basal and hug the ground.

Its companions here are Silver King Artemesia and Globe thistles.

Still to come in this border are the Silver Rods, or white goldenrod, and the Rough-leaved goldenrods. Both of these were also volunteers. I have added the Rigid and the Showy Goldenrod, but their time is not yet. They have fat yellow spikes and resemble Liatris.
