Goldenrod (Soldiago gigantea). Goldenrod is a perennial that will grow to 2-3 feet tall. It has small yellow flowers that appear at the end of summer until frost. "The leaves of goldenrods are simple, lance or egg shaped and usually have a toothed margin" (Jim Mason). It propogates through both seeds and spreading its root system, which can cause it to overtake wildflower gardens.
