Solidago caesia (Blue-stemmed or Wreath Goldenrod)
This graceful, well-behaved goldenrod is found in upland woods and clearings throughout eastern North America,* especially in deciduous forests where oak trees are dominant. Its delicate composite flowers attract many late-season pollinators, including native specialist bees.
*It is native throughout most of the Mid-Atlantic Region (mostly below 3,000 feet elevation in the mountains), except for portions of the Delmarva Peninsula in Delaware and Maryland.
