Description: This goldenrod is very similar to Riddell's goldenrod. Both have a flatter top flower and longer smooth leaves that hug the stem at the base. Both are found in similar habitats, enjoying a wetter soil. The easiest way to tell them apart is by the veining in the leaf. Ohio goldenrod has single vein with webbing off this main vein and almost smooth leaf margin. It is a great late season pollination source as well as winter seed source.
