Are you asking about the goldenrod?
Or the sorghum?

Goldenrod is an introduced non-native that grows wild in most of the United States, but does provide nectar and pollen for insects and forage for deer and livestock. If it is not totally taking over, you might just co-exist with it. Pretty stands of yellow when blooming.

Solidago canadensis is native to North America, Deb.

I've not heard of any non-native Solidagos being spotted in N. Amer, but I don't follow them closely.

"They are mostly native to North America, including Mexico; a few species are native to South America and Eurasia.[1] Some American species have also been introduced into Europe and other parts of the world."

I stand corrected, Sooby, thanks. I misread a USDA website, our goldenrod has been introduced TO Europe and east Asia and is now considered a non-native invasive in those regions. Mea culpa.

I remember people growing goldenrod in gardens on purpose when I lived in the UK, then I came to Canada and found it growing everywhere and usually not wanted. It gets the blame for allergies caused by ragweed. I remember a certain well-known TV doctor talking about ragweed allergy while showing a picture of goldenrod on the screen Rolling my eyes.
