Description

Solidago 

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

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.

(Solidago speciosa)

Upright stems topped by feathery, yellow blooms. Grows 3-5’ in height, prefers medium to dry soil, full sun, will spread over time.

Stiff Goldenrod (Solidago rigida or Oligoneuron rigidum)

Flat topped blooms on stiff stalks, spreads by seed and not runners. Grows 2-4’ in height, prefers medium to dry soil, full sun.

Note: These are either Showy or Stiff Goldenrod; got my labels mixed up so I’m not sure which is which! I have a few that are labeled correctly, so let me know if you specifically want one or the other.
