Solidago caesia

wreath goldenrod, axillary goldenrod (Solidago axillaris)

Goldenrods normally like it sunny and dry, but wreath goldenrod grows happily under the shade of deciduous trees. It does fine in less well-draining soils, brightening up late-season woodlands with its vibrant flowers. This is a pollinator powerhouse.
