Solidago General Information:

Solidago are perfect for providing fresh blooms in the difficult late summer/early fall time slot and provide a great backdrop for mums and other late bloomers. It has gotten a hayfever reputation because it blooms at the same time as Ragweed - Goldenrod does not aggravate hayfever!

Solidago Plant Care:

Avoid overly rich soils. For more compact plants, cut back by half in June or pinch back in May. This will also increase branching and bushiness. Can be divided every 2 - 3 years in spring. Spent flower stalks provide winter interest, but can be cut down pretty much anytime.
