About

Published on Sep 18, 2013

Canada Goldenrod (Solidago canadensis) is a member of the Asteraceae (aster/sunflower) family. It is native to North America, but has become circumboreal and is spreading problematically in various parts of Europe and Asia. Outside of its native habitat, the plant can spread quickly with a single stalk of the plant being able to produce 20,000 seeds. China, in particluar, is having much difficulty with its spread. In Shanghai, it has caused the extinction of 30 native species, while in other parts of China, it is having an effect on orange crops.

Here in its native range, the Nlaka'pmx and Okanagan peoples traditionally used the stems and flower heads to make a tea to assist fighting diarrhea.

I had to add music to this video due to a lot of vehicle noise behind me when I filmed it...
