Aptly named for its stem that tends to zigzag between leaves. This species blooms late into the summer and fall with yellow clusters of flowers near the top of the plant.  Its leaves are sharply pointed, and are broader and more coarsely toothed than those of Blue-stem Goldenrod. A shade tolerant wildflower, which is native to rich woods and thickets. It is also an important late season food source for bees and other insects, when other plant life is shutting down for the cooler seasons. While goldenrods are often held responsible for fall allergies, its pollen is quite sticky and heavy so it does not become airborne. It is usually Ragweed that is to blame, so enjoy this wildflower sneeze-free! Compliments other fall blooms such as Smooth Blue Aster and New England Aster.
