Solidago glomerata
Mount Leconte, Great Smoky Mountains National Park
September 1, 2006

This plant was blooming at over 6500' near the top of Mt. Leconte. I know to the folks in the western states, that elevation doesn't seem too much, but it is the second highest elevation in Tennessee. I didn't notice a skunky odor to this plant, but I didn't molest the leaves to crush them to see if they have a smell! It's not nice (or legal!) to abuse plants in the National Park! :)
