Notes:

This plant is found on the prairie in Minissota. We have found it on Ordway, Lake Johanna, and Roscoe. It tends to grow in wetter areas, us ally on the edges of marshes and fens. We find it mostly growing amongst Canada goldenrod. We thought it was a goldenrod that formed wrong but we have found a decent amount of them. We started seeing them around August. We have looked on the Minnesota wildflower website and through several books but have found nothing.

    Looks like a goldenrod bunch gall caused by the Goldenrod Gall Midge (Rhopalomyia solidaginis). Check out the link below for more information. Best wishes! http://www.hiltonpond.org/thisweek051001.html
