Blue-Stemmed, Bluestem, Woodland, Wreath Goldenrod (Solidago caesia)

(Blue-Stemmed Goldenrod - 01)  Blue-stemmed goldenrod bloom from August to October, and are usually found in clumps where they grow from a caudex.  The most distinguishing characteristic of the blue-stemmed goldenrod is its blue colored stem, which led to its common name, and which is sometimes written as "bluestem".  The blue-stemmed goldenrod usually grows in woodland clearings or along the edges of the woods, which is why this wildflower is sometimes called "woodland goldenrod".  The other common name, wreath goldenrod, presumably was derived from the way this goldenrod grows in a curved arch with flower clusters (racemes) growing from leaf axils along the stem.  The uppermost racemes are usually blooming by the time the lower ones develop, as with the blue-stemmed goldenrod in this photo.

Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation.  Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion.  It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
