The provincially rare Riddell’s Goldenrod provides pollen to a wide range of insects including flies, bees, wasps, moths, and butterflies. Habitat loss, due to conversion of prairie to farmland and urbanization, is the main force driving population declines. This species is also sensitive to changes in moisture caused by drainage projects. It reproduces by wind-scattered fruits or by sending up shoots from an underground stem.
