  • Is this a kind of aster?

    Hello,
    We are in our first summer in our house, and many, many flowers have come up.* We are unsure of so many!* Does anyone know what this is?* We have 3 clumps just like this one!* They are about 6 ft tall!* Is it a weed or flower?
    Thank you!

    Without flowers it would be difficult to say, but I suspect it's some type of aster or sunflower.* Can you post pics of the flowers when it blooms?* Try and ger a close up photo of them.* Also let us know where this plant is growing.* If it's in the US, what state?*

        Mandy, you might want to add your location and hardiness zone to your profile so you won't have to remember to tell us and we won't have to ask each time.* :)*

        I'd love to see your new pics once they bloom.

              Hello,
              I think I got it identified!* A neighbor saw it, and told me it is goldenrod.* Who would have thought!* Must be because of the tops of it now.** I am attaching another picture.* The tops are just like the goldenrod I found online, just not golden yet.* What do you think?

                That's really great news. *:dude: * I thought of goldenrod, but I have a dwarf variety so it doesn't get so tall.* You might consider cutting it back once or twice before July 4th so it won't be so tall when it blooms.* That will make it bloom about a week or two later as well.

                  Hi,* A horticulturalist from the extension office came over this morning.* This is in fact goldenrod.* She suggested pulling it out of where we don't want it!* She also said that it will take over a yard!* Just thought you'd like to know!*

                    Mandy, thanks for the update.**:)* I have a dwarf variety and it does tend to seed around, but I cut off the spent flower heads after bloom so it doesn't do that.* If you don't like it, of course get rid of it.

                    Glad to hear you have some help with id of your plants.* That's great.
