- Eight wild growing Solidago virga-aurea L. populations were examined in order to introduce this species into cultivation in Hungary. The purpose of this research was to select the most adequate taxa with high content of active compounds, which could be effectively cultivated and assure proper base for breeding. Natural habitats were evaluated from coenological and pedological point of view. Investigations also have been started on the analysis of some active substances (flavonglycosides and phenol-carboxylic acids) using thin-layer chromatography (TLC). According to the compounds examined, the populations could be completely distinguished.
