Noteworthy Characteristics: White (Silverrod) Goldenrod features a thin, wiry silver stem and heads of white ray flowers mostly clustered in the axils of the leaves, rather than displayed in a large terminal bloom. The slightly yellowish look is largely due to the color of the stamens and the pollen. Garden Uses: Erosion control, native garden.
