The goldenrod plant is often blamed for allergic reactions like runny nose, itchy eyes, headache, and congestion, particularly in mid- to late-summer.  However, goldenrod isn’t likely the plant causing your suffering, but rather the ragweed plant.  Ragweed is green without the bright yellow flowers.
