Soligado canadensis - Goldenrod - Canadian Goldenrod

The flowering plant prefers sunny spots and avoids shadowy places. It belongs to the family Asteraceae and is found in the meadows and pastures, along roads, ditches and waste areas. Goldenrod and members of the family is native to North America and have become invasive species in other parts of the world including Europe and China where they have been brought as garden plants. Nowadays you can see them frequently along roads and motorways in Germany and Scandinavia. The plant is an attractive source for nectar for bees, flies, wasps, and butterflies.
