Goldenrod (Golden Rod)

 Do not Feed
  • Common Name: Goldenrod (Golden Rod)
  • Latin Name: Solidago spp.
  • Family Name: Asteraceae/Compositae

There are no known hazards for most of the Solidago genus, but they do contain some saponins.  Godenrod is also grown in gardens as a decorative plant.

N.B.  Some Goldenrod e.g. Solidago mollis (Velvety Goldenrod) are toxic to livestock; so to avoid incorrect identification it would be best to steer clear.  See Rayless Goldenrod.
