Description from Prairie Moon Nursery: Riddell’s Goldenrod produces mounded clusters of lemon-yellow flowers from August through October.  As the plant blossoms, the leaves will often wither away, drawing attention to the bobbing yellow buds atop naked stems; these turn a ruddy red as the coolness of autumn creeps in and transforms the flowers into tufted, oatmeal-colored seedheads. The foliage is quite distinct: the midvein is very pronounced, with the edges on either side folding upwards.  Leaves layer over each other, creating a beautiful “braided” effect as they ascend the stem.  The long, narrow foliage arcs gracefully away from the center.  These foliage factors are unique to Riddell’s Goldenrod.
