Zigzag Goldenrod (Solidago flexicaulis) This woodland goldenrod, with erect, somewhat zig-zag stems, bears small flower heads on short axillary stalks from the upper leaves. The plant is 8-48 in. tall with pointed, alternate, oval leaves that are coarsely toothed. Very easy care for a woodland plant, it does not require mulching as it is adapted to dry conditions.
This goldenrod attracts butterflies.
