This lovely goldenrod species is relatively short and has a vase-shaped habit. The bright lemon-yellow flowers bloom in the fall, providing nectar for beneficial insects, butterflies and hummingbirds.
Solidago nemoralis is drought tolerant and easy to grow. It self-sows prolifically, so cut it down after blooming if you don't want more plants. Also known as Gray Goldenrod or Prairie Goldenrod. Hardy in zones 4-9.
Sowing Goldenrod Seeds:
