It's that time of year again--we're slowly sliding into fall and the goldenrod (Solidago) varieties are beginning to bloom. The bees love goldenrod. Many people mistake goldenrod for ragweed (Ambrosia), but they are not the same. It is ragweed that causes hayfever, and not goldenrod, so go ahead and leave these wildflowers to grow. The bees will love you, too!
