What is the name of this plant?

Asked May 30, 2019, 10:08 PM EDT

I am a Master Gardener in Illinois and our neighbor sent me a picture of a plant that I cannot identify. This plant is in a newly purchased yard located in Boring, Oregon. I searched bell shaped perennials; I get close but the leaves don’t match up with anything I find. Can you identify this please?

Thank you for your question. Although a specific ID won’t be certain until the plant (and flower) are mature, it appears to be a small goldenrod.

Dear Kristina, I’m not so sure it is a small goldenrod, the leaves don’t match. The flowers are like bells. What other ideas do you have?
