Solidago odora produces a cluster of basal leaves that puts up an erect stem with whorled leaves and spreading upper branches covered in flowers. The flowers are tiny and yellow and line the upper branches and are great pollinator attractors. Tiny seed heads follow the flowers in fall. All parts of this plant have a pleasant anise-like scent.
