Solidago leiocarpa, common name Cutler’s alpine goldenrod,[2] or (in Québec) verge d’or de Cutler, is a plant species native to mountainous portions of Québec, northern New England, and northern New York State.[4] It is generally found at elevations over 800 m (2400 feet).[2]

Solidago leiocarpa is closely related to the more widespread S. multiradiata, distinguished by the shape of the phyllaries surrounding the flower heads. Solidago leiocarpais a perennial herb up to 35 cm (14 inches) tall. One plant can have as many as 160 small yellow flower heads in a flat-topped or conical array.[2]
