Oh, Beautiful, for Goldenrod and Its Good Friends
Here's a salute to Kentucky's state flower, goldenrod, Solidago, so lush this year. I have only recently noticed this plant's beauty. Before, I saw it primarily as a source of sneezes. Sherry and Geoff Maddock of 4th Street Farm plant many native flowers to attract pollinators, dozens of types in addition to honeybees. See the buzz in the video below [here's the link] at this beautiful pollinator factory in the heart of Lexington, Kentucky.
