Common Name: Golden Rod

Airy, late blooming plants performing well in our dry, well drained conditions. Some types spread at the roots and need space, other clump and are more compact.

Some species can get mildew. The ones we grow don't in our garden.

Propagation is by division.

A member of the Asteraceae family.

Solidago x. luteus Lemore

Flowers like small asters in pale lemon on 2ft 9in tall plants blooming from late July onwards.

This one is a slow clumper, not a rapid spreader

Also called x.Solidaster lutea: inter-genus cross between Solidago and Aster as one of its parents was previously classified as an Aster but is now placed in Solidago. Confused?

Whatever the name its a lovely late bloomer.

Solidago rugosa Fireworks

Lovely, rugged Golden Rod with masses of tiny, bright yellow flowers along its 4ft stems. Starts flowering in early September.

This one does spread but not too rapidly.

Perfect Partners: The bold yellow feathery flowers on Solidago rugosa Fireworks set the tone for this late summer / autumn border in our garden. In the foreground is Helenium Hot Luv and moving back through the border we see Aster x. frikartii Mônch, Dahlia David Howard,  Helenium El Dorado, and lastly Aster Vasterival. October
