Solidago odora, sometimes referred to as fragrant goldenrod, can be easily identified by its anise-scented leaves which can be used in teas.  Plants grow to 2-4’ tall with plume-like clusters of yellow, daisy-like flowers that bloom in August-September and are attractive to bees and butterflies.

“Named for the licorice fragrance given off by the leaves when crushed, the dense spires of golden-yellow flowers provide a burst of late season color.”   Prairie Nursery
