California Goldenrod (Solidago velutina ssp. californica) - TheBackCountry

Solidago velutina,  know as goldenrod, is a plant species native to Mexico and to the western United States. The species has been found in southwestern Oregon, east to the Black Hills of South Dakota, and as far south as México State in the central part of the Republic of México.[

Recent taxonomic treatments have expanded the concept of S. velutina to include S. californica and S. sparsiflora, long considered by many to be distinct species. These are now often treated as subspecies:

   Solidago velutina subsp. californica (Nutt.) Semple - California, Oregon

   Solidago velutina subsp. sparsiflora (A.Gray) Semple

Another infraspecific taxon is also recognized by some authors:

   Solidago velutina var. nevadensis (A. Gray) C.E.S. Taylor & R.J. Taylor
