Leos are babies born between July 23 and August 22. They’re confident, strong, loving, and warm. At the same time, they love the spotlight and are generally creative, dominant, and known as the most extroverted of the zodiac signs.
Yellow solidago, also known as goldenrod, is a perennial herb commonly found in North America, Mexico, and some parts of Europe, Africa, and Asia. The flower consists of radiate blooms, which are tiny yellow florets that clump together at the top of the stem.
It primarily blooms in late summer and can grow over three feet tall. Their nectar attracts bees, flies, wasps, and butterflies and produces a spicy honey that can be fairly harsh both in smell and taste before it fully matures into a milder, more palatable flavor.
