Solidago canadensis, Golden Rod

This yellow flower blooms in the fall. Has the beautiful yellow flowers that hold their color for several weeks and then the seed heads remain until winter. It spreads rizomously which helps prevent erosion on steeper slopes. Can get quite thick if watered to frequently. A monthly watering in the summer is adequate. This is doing really well in my yard. Its been growing for nearly ten years. The on pictures is a single plant that might be a couple of years old.
