Introduction

The Illustrated Flora of British Columbia previously recognized Solidago spathulata and its three varieties as present in BC. However, this species has been renamed to Solidago simplex. Two varieties are now recognized in BC: Solidago simplex var. simplex and Solidago simplex var. nana. The latter is the alpine and sub-alpine taxon.
