Goldenrod, the Nebraska state flower lies dead (killed) in Texas

Killed by Jim and Adi!

Unwanted, killed, and dead by pulling. Jim pulled it out of his flower bed last week.

Goldenrod flowers really grow big in Texas! Everything does! Eat your hearts out Nebraskans. This is one from last summer before it went to seed.
.Too big for their britches, these were last year's gone to seed a little.

Goldenrods grow by spread of seed. They also grow runners under ground and baby plants pop up all over the place.

Mrs. Jim got me one plant for my birthday years ago. They were out of hand for a couple of years later, now we almost have them eradicated. They are what we call wild flowers in Texas, actually to most they are just weeds.
Here is my partner in crime. Adi wanted the ruler laid down to measure it. You can see it is two yards long, six feet. They won't grow that tall in Nebraska, ever.

They don't grow that long in Kentucky either.
