Goldenrod: Solidago rugosa 'Fireworks' Quart Pot
Perennial. I'm a little embarrassed (dare I say mortified) to say when we first starting farming I snubbed my nose at goldenrod. I thought it was a ho-hum weed that made people sneeze. Both of which are NOT TRUE! I have come to love it so much I buy more plants of it every year to stick around the farm because it brings me so much joy. I'd choose this gold any day over the real thing. And pollinators love it! This 'Fireworks' variety works best as a landscape plant; we have it planted under our studio windows and it makes a magical fireworks display in September, the month I have deemed 'the month of yellow' because so many yellow native wildflowers bloom. I've found goldenrod to be very difficult to start from seed, so I've just bought plugs and they work great. This one is super easy to grow and care for; prefers moist, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Cut back before it begins it's new growth in the spring.
