Goldenrod—Tires, Tea, Herbal Medicines

Goldenrod does look like a golden rod!! It is the state flower of several states in the USA. The leaves and seeds are edible and the plant is used in herbal medicines and tea. Thomas Edison used this plant for extracting rubber. Henry Ford gifted a car to Edison with tires made from Goldenrod!!! (source-wikipedia). It grows in the wild in the Indian Himalayas, each tiny flower shines like gold from afar…..
