Most goldenrods occur in sunny, open habitats. Zigzag Goldenrod (Solidago flexicaulis) is an exception, inhabiting shady hardwood forests. It is readily identified by its coarsely toothed leaves, clusters of flowers in the axils of the upper leaves, and by the feature that gives this plant its name its crooked stems.

 

 

Collected by Agnes L. Warner in Saint John, New Brunswick, July 1892.
