Upland White Aster (Upland White Goldenrod)
Oligoneuron album (Aster ptarmicoides, Solidago ptarmicoides)
The classification of upland white aster has been controversial. It has been classified variously as an aster, a goldenrod, and in its own genus. Its current classification in the genus Oligoneuron places it with stiff goldenrod and a few other yellow-flowered plants.
Upland white aster is endangered in Connecticut. These photographs were taken in Ontario, where the plant is more common.
