Botanical Description:
Solidago virgaurea, commonly known as European goldenrod or woundwort, is a perennial herbaceous plant native to Europe, Asia, and North Africa. It belongs to the Asteraceae family, which also includes sunflowers, daisies, and asters. Solidago virgaurea typically grows up to 30-60 centimeters in height, with erect stems bearing lance-shaped leaves arranged alternately along the stem. The plant produces dense clusters of bright yellow flowers at the top of the stems, which bloom from late summer to early autumn. The flowers are rich in nectar and attract bees and other pollinators. Solidago virgaurea thrives in a variety of habitats, including meadows, woodlands, and open grasslands. It is valued for its medicinal properties and has been used in traditional herbalism for centuries.

Solidago virgaurea has a long history of use in traditional European herbal medicine, where it has been valued for its potential health benefits and therapeutic properties. Solidago has historically been associated with promoting urinary tract health.
