Goldenrods are a powerhouse plant when it comes to pollinators! Goldenrod is an important nectar and seed source for butterflies and small birds in fall when many other plants have finished blooming.

Elmleaf Goldenrod is a shade-friendly goldenrod, growing best in dappled shade. Flowers bloom at the top of arching stems attracting bees & butterflies. Can spread both by self-seeding and by rhizomes. Late summer or early fall blooms, grows 1-4’ tall, partial shade, medium to med-dry soil, drought resistant once established.

Note: goldenrod does NOT cause hayfever! Ragweed is to blame for that. The pollen of goldenrod is large and sticky so that it adheres to visiting insects. That means it doesn’t become airborne, and won’t travel into your sinuses. Ragweed has lightweight pollen that is easily airborne.
