In 1942, Dr. E. Lucy Braun described a new species of Solidago, S. albopilosa, which she had discovered in the sandstone “rockhouses” of Menifee and Powell counties of Kentucky. In her publication on this plant (2), she stated that it was evidently related to S. flexicaulis L. (S. latifolia L.) although clearly specifically distinct from that species.
