Hex colour ref: fcd975

A colourful note: this bright shade is named after the goldenrod flower, a plant that has had a variety of health uses.  In many areas it has acted as a traditional kidney tonic for kidney stones,  whilst Native Americans chewed the leaves to relieve sore throats and the roots to ease toothache.
The first known recorded use of goldenrod as a colour name in English was in 1915, and it made its first appearance as a Crayola crayon in 1958.
