Quick Overview:

This compact, spreading goldenrod features tiny, bright yellow flowers borne in dense, plume-like panicles on the ends of stiff, alternate-leaved stems typically growing 15-18″ tall. Rosettes of toothed, heart-shaped foliage form an attractive, low-growing, mat-like, dark green ground cover when plants are not in flower. Late summer to fall bloom period. Goldenrods have been wrongly accused of causing hay fever which is actually an allergic reaction caused by wind-borne pollen from other plants such as ragweed. Attractive to bees and butterflies. Good cut flower.

Description

Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun. Tolerates poor, dry soils. Remove spent flower clusters to encourage additional bloom. Mass to create a ground cover (plant 15″ apart).
