Canadian goldenrod (Solidago canadensis), which produces the pollen that causes hay fever, has hairy stems and leaves with sharp lobes. Other species have hairless stems without thorns. Goldenrods are usually perennial plants from 0.2 to 3 m tall, but some are annual plants. The leaves are produced in a dense basal rosette and alternately along the stem. The inflorescences are often one-sided (secund), with the lower florets possessing sterile ray flowers and the upper florets fertile disc flowers.
Solidago species can be found throughout North America, with some species endemic to the United States, primarily the southern and eastern regions of that country. Solidago is a genus of about 150 species of herbs native to North America, Europe, and Asia.
