1. Solidago multiradiata Aiton, Hort. Kew. 3: 218. 1789.

Northern or Rocky Mountain goldenrod , verge d'or à rayons nombreux

Aster multiradiatus (Aiton) Kuntze; Solidago algida Piper; S. cusickii Piper; S. dilatata A. Nelson; S. heterophylla Nuttall ; S. multiradiata var. arctica (de Candolle) Fernald; S. multiradiata var. scopulorum A. Gray; S. rubra Rydberg; S. scopulorum (A. Gray) A. Nelson; S. virgaurea Linnaeus var. arctica de Candolle; S. virgaurea Linnaeus var. multiradiata (Aiton) Torrey & A. Gray

Plants (3—)10—30(—80) cm; caudices branched. Stems 1—10(—30+), decumbent to erect, slender, tufted, proximally glabrous or sparsely hairy, densely short-hispido-strigose in arrays. Leaves: basal and proximal cauline petiolate; petioles winged, margins ciliate; blades linear-oblanceolate to spatulate, 10—170 × 3—30 mm, serrate to crenate near apices; distal cauline sessile; blades sometimes subclasping stems, ovate to linear-lanceolate, 16—20 × 7—11 mm, margins often distinctly ciliate. Heads 4—75(—100+) , not secund, in dense, round-topped corymbiform arrays; branches white villous. Peduncles 5—6 mm, villous; bracteoles 0—2, linear-lanceolate to lanceolate. Involucres 4—8 mm. Phyllaries unequal to subequal, outer linear-lanceolate to lanceolate, lengths ± 2 / 3 inner, margins ciliate, apices acute to attenuate. Ray florets 12—18; laminae 3—4 × 0.5—1 mm. Disc florets 10—35; corollas 3—5 mm, lobes 0.3—1 mm. Cypselae 1.5—4 mm, sparsely to moderately strigose; pappi 3—4 mm (inner bristles clavate). 2 n = 18, 36.

Flowering Jul—Sep. Tundra and tundralike habitats, alpine slopes and meadows; 0—3700 m; Alta., B.C., Man., N.B., Nfld. and Labr., N.W.T., N.S., Nunavut, Ont., Que., Sask., Yukon; Alaska, Ariz., Calif., Colo., Idaho, Mont., N.Mex., Oreg., Utah, Wash., Wyo.

Solidago multiradiata is the North American species most closely related to S. virgaurea , the type species of the genus, native to mostly arctic and alpine regions of Eurasia. Plants of S. multiradiata from the Rocky Mountains have been treated as var. scopulorum ; they differ so little from those of other parts of the range that recognition of the variety without further support does not appear justified.
