Zigzag Goldenrod (Goldenrod. Broad-leaved)
This plant is called zigzag goldenrod because the stem is sometimes crooked, zigzagging from leaf to leaf. However, as you can see from the second photo below, the stem is sometimes virtually straight.
For help with identifying goldenrods, we recommend the web site Goldenrods of New England.
Family: Aster (Asteraceae)
