Nebraska state flower en Setting the Record Straight for Goldenrod <p></p><p>Goldenrod is a wallflower, standing in the background, while other flowers in the garden take center stage.&nbsp; It has been blamed for watery eyes and runny noses, when in fact, the true cause of those allergy symptoms is probably ragweed which blooms at the same time.&nbsp; Goldenrod has taken the heat for years for, but its&nbsp; blame without substantiation.&nbsp; It is a rare gardener to take up the cause of the Goldenrod, but I like this plant.&nbsp; It has a place in my garden.&nbsp; Thu, 21 Feb 2013 06:01:00 +0000 Skip Mancini 12577 at Setting the Record Straight for Goldenrod
