Author(Torrey & A. Gray) Porter
DistributionMapped in NC by Weakley (2018, 2020) and said to "possibly" occur in the Carolinas, based on John Semple's goldenrod website. Semple and students have made their way through the genus Solidago and have provided detailed text, images, and maps for all taxa that they recognize. Keys may or may not be provided. Specimens examined are not cited. The maps do not show county outlines and therefore are only approximate. We will await more specific data before accepting this taxon as part of the NC flora. A specimen at BOON from Wake County, and not even from a limestone-based habitat, must surely be incorrect.

This species occurs from southern Canada south to TN and westward.
