Solidago lepida

Western Goldenrod - Solidago lepida  Photographed in Mineral Creek, East side of the Black Range on September 18, 2017.  This species is found at lower to middle elevations in the Black Range, usually in the shade.  This species is found in most of the provinces of Canada and in the western United States (see BONAP map to the right, where light green indicates that the species is native to - and not rare within - the range indicated) and Baja California & Chihuahua, Mexico. The species was first described by Augustin Pyramus de Candolle in 1836.
