Wetness Index: FACU
Physiognomy: Nt P-Forb

Prairies, dry fields and hillsides; may spread along roadsides and railroads, and from prairie plantings beyond its native range. The recent record along I-75 in Cheboygan Co. is surely a non-native occurrence. 

This is a tall, handsome, large-headed goldenrod. The blades of the lower cauline leaves, like the basal ones, are much larger than the upper cauline leaves, and instead of being sessile or nearly so are on long petioles.
