Solidago canadensis: seeds at winter's end

[Photo: Solidago canadensis seeds at winter's end.]Solidago canadensis, known in English as Canada goldenrod and in French as verge d'or du Canada, is a perennial native to most of North America. Its bright yellow/gold plumes of tiny flowers are a familiar sight in late summer and early autumn.

The delicate, fluffy seeds, still arranged in the characteristic plumes, persist through the winter.
