A yard long

Okay, this one’s not quite a yard. But can you imagine these rhizomes weaving through each other–and the crowns of your cultivated plants? And then more goldenrod grows from these rhizomes.

In its own way, frost may be one of the most beautiful things to happen in your garden all year . . . Don’t miss it. Like all true beauty, it is fleeting. It will grace your garden for but a short while this morning. . . . For this moment, embrace frost as the beautiful gift that it is.

Thank you for the information AND THE PICTURES! Had one of these show up in my garden and had no idea what it was. It stands over 6 ft tall and has only now bloomed. Tried to identify it on the web from its flowers and leaves with no luck. Finally, for some unknown reason, Goldenrod popped into my mind and whalla! Thanks for the clear information.
