Because of its aster-like flowers, this plant has historically been classified in the Asteracaea family. In 1981, however, the research of botanists Brouillet and Semple revealed that it actually belongs to the goldenrod family; as a result, this flower also has the Latin name ‘Solidago ptarmicoides.’ This fact explains its characteristically goldenrod-like foliage and readiness to hybridize with that family. Regardless of its confusing family history, this plant distinguishes itself by its mounds of white flowers in even the driest, poorest soil and hottest sun.
