pine barren goldenrod, Solidago fistulosa

Pine barren goldenrod is a southeastern species. Were you to tour the southeast in the fall, you would see lots of flowers in the aster family, particularly goldenrods. One eye on the road and one on the goldenrod makes a great trip. But in Georgia you might want a third eye for lane dividers. Did you know that if you hit something just right, you can blow the air out of a tire without damaging it? Pine barren grows in typical goldenrod places as well as those barrens, in AL, DE, FL, GA, LA, MD, MS, NC, NJ, PA, and SC. Dixie Co FL, 10/20/15.
