Solidago gigantea is an enduring spice that arrives at statures of up to 2 m (6.6 ft) tall, now and then spreading through underground rhizomes. It regularly develops in bunches without any leaves at the base yet various leaves on the stem. At the top, each stem delivers a sizable exhibit of many little bloom heads, now and then a few hundred. Each head is yellow, containing both circle florets and beam florets.[4]

Natural surroundings
Solidago gigantea is found in a wide assortment of normal environments, in spite of the fact that it is confined to regions with at minimum occasionally wet soils.[4][8]

It is a far and wide animal categories known from the greater part of non-icy North America east of the Rocky Mountains. It has been accounted for from each state and territory from Alberta to Nova Scotia to Florida to Texas, and furthermore from the province of Nuevo León in northeastern Mexico.[9][10]

Ecological effect
Solidago gigantea is exceptionally obtrusive all through Europe and Asia.[11] In its non-local reach, it applies an adverse consequence on local networks by diminishing species lavishness and variety, clearly because of its extraordinary cutthroat effects,[12] fast growth,[13] or polyploidization.[14] In the non-local European reach, a few administration choice are applied, like periodical flooding, cutting, mulching, touching, or herbicide to decrease the adverse consequence of the species on local biodiversity.[15]

Parasitized by the Basidiomycete Coleosporium asterum.[16]
