Virginia goldenrod, Solidago gracillima

Virginia or graceful goldenrod has in the past not always been considered a separate species. It was often lumped together with S. stricta. Virginia now is more accepted, but that raises a new question. Can we trust old reports when we try to find Virginia? Today we will go with FDA and say this grows mostly in pinelands in AL, FL, GA, KY(S), NC, SC, TN, VA, and WV. Colquit Co GA, 10/19/15.
