    Goldenrod is a main flow for northern states (that's what i've been told) but here in SW. Mo. it's rare to see a bee on it. :confused: There are many varieties of goldenrod, maybe we have the type they don't work? i've also been told it's the type of soil you have? Our main fall flow is Aster, and it usually don't amount to much. :roll: Jack

    the pic is actually sweet goldenrod, solidago odora.

    As Jack said there are many (125) species of goldenrod.
