In my region, it grows everywhere. It is shorter in my drier places, but it is still plentiful. I often see it in the roadside ditches as well, where it grows to 5 feet tall. I cannot find my reference right now, but I did read that it has similar properties to the Common Boneset you have highlighted. I have used dried Late Flowering Boneset combined with dried Goldenrod for any cold or flu-like symptoms in my family with success.
If using the dried flowers in my teas, it tastes very very bitter. If I exclude the flowers the taste is soooo much better and does not require honey. That is, for my family's palate. We are not sensitive to bitterness in our diet. But how much medicine is lost for not including the flowers? Thoughts?

Brace yourself while corporate america tries to sell us its things. Some day they will chill and use tiny ads.
