NYBG EcoFlora Update, October 2019

October's EcoQuest Challenge is SEEK SUMAC.

Over 150 New Yorkers observed nearly 2,000 Goldenrods last month. We found fifteen of the previously recorded nineteen species, including one new for the City and two that where thought to be historical. The two historical species were both found in the Bronx (Solidago ulmifolia and Solidago arguta). On Staten Island, Zihao Wang found Solidago puberula, a species never before recorded for New York City. There are now twenty Goldenrods documented from NYC; two are historical (Solidago aestivalis, Solidago latissimifolia) and one is rare (Solidago uliginosa).
