  1. Question

    Christine Owensby

    Hello Richo Cech:
    I was considering purchasing goldenrod. I have a question in regards to how it spreads as I read it was invasive. Does it spread by rhizomes or is it clumping where I could have a little more control of it? Thank you, Christine

      Goldenrod spreads rhizomatously and also self-seeds. It can be very pesky and is a great medicinal herb. If you want it, harvest in full flower. If you don’t want it, mow it or till it. richo

      flowers in the second year, depending on when planted, spring or fall, could be 12 months or 8 months.

      I have seed of 5 different types, Blue Stemmed (caesia), zig zag (flexicaulis), Bog (uliginosa), Showy (speciosa) and Cliff (sciaphila). Does this matter medicinally?

      hi jennifer, It does matter. European herbalists swear by S. virgaurea, another species S. odora is equally useful, and S. canadensis or S. gigantea are also useful. richo
