Solidago odora is becoming rather scarce in the Ohio Valley region because of loss of habitat. I have noticed that when planted singly it often does not overwinter. It likes a dry soil that remains well-drained. If the root crown sits in wet soil, it will rot.

Ah, that probably explains it. It was in an area that frequently has standing water after heavy rains and in early spring. The moist-to-wet clay soil here probably wouldn't support it all that well. I might give it a try all the same, though; it is native to the county.

I just returned from a long hike through a wooded area and noted that nearly every Solidago juncea did not have basal leaves present on plants in bloom. However, there were basal leaves present on other plants, but no flowering stem.

Thanks for posting that observation. It's a helpful note that I can write in the ID books that I use.
