A description of Solidago stricta is provided in The Flora of North America.




In the Coastal Plain in Florida and Georgia, S. stricta can be found in open woodlands, pine flatwoods, pine-palmetto flatwoods, ditches, lagoon edges, banks of brackish marshes, high pinelands, longleaf pine-turkey oak ridges, salt flats bordering mangrove swamps, recently burned longleaf pine-wiregrass savannas, seepage bogs, banks of ephemeral ponds, tidal marshes, sandhills, and coastal dunes. [1] It can also be found in lawns, clobbered slash pines, recently planted slash pine plantations, roadsides, vacant lots, powerline corridors, and logged over hillside bogs. It tends to be more common in mesic and wet areas than dry areas. [2] Substrates include loamy sand, peaty sand, alluvial sands, limerock, sand, and sandy peat. [1] Associated species include Vigna luteola, Liatris, Pityopsis, Aristida stricta, Pinus palustris, Andropogon, Solidago sempervirens, Senecio and Euthamia. [1]


Flowering has been observed year round and fruiting has been observed February through December.[1][3]
