Two for the Road! Autumn's SC State Symbols – Goldenrod and SweetgrassThis fall SCIway brings you two new South Carolina symbols – goldenrod and sweetgrass. Both grow wild along our roadsides this time of year, so you can spot them easily just by driving around our state.
Today we feature goldenrod, our state wildflower. Goldenrod is easy to recognize as it grows profusely along South Carolina roadsides and has deep yellow flowers which bloom from early September through the first frost. Its height distinguishes it as well – it can grow anywhere from four to eight feet tall.
We hope you will take a moment to enjoy our complete guide to goldenrod in South Carolina. Here are just a few fun facts to pique your interest.
Be sure to also check our guides to two more of South Carolina's symbols that we enjoy every fall – the elegant eastern tiger swallowtail and the wonderful wild turkey!
