Goldenrod is a tall herbaceous perennial with yellow flowers in late summer.  It is a gentle medicinal herb for treating wounds, urinary infections, coughs and flu. Noted for attracting beneficial insects like ladybirds, lacewings and hoverflies, along with monarch butterflies – check out his video clip from one of our customers showing the monarchs flocking to the beautiful autumn flowers:

 

Goldenrod can also be used to obtain dyes – mustard, orange and brown colours from the whole plant and a yellow dye from the leaves and flowers.
