Thumbnail Filmstrip of Solidago speciosa - Showy Goldenrod Images
The most beautiful of all the goldenrods the splendidly sculpted flower clusters of Solidago speciosa create a spectacular show in the late summer and fall.
Its foot-long wands of blazing yellow add prominence to any planting and it makes fabulous fresh cut flowers! Solidago speciosa is also an important late
season nectar source for butterflies and other pollinators. Growing in medium loam soils to very dry sand and attaining a height of three to five feet,
Showy Goldenrod makes a fine addition to the autumn garden!
NOTE: All Goldenrods are an important fall nectar source for many pollinators including the Monarch butterfly, so it is unfortunate that these fall blooming natives are mistakenly blamed for hayfever. The pollen of Goldenrods is large and sticky which sticks to the bodies of visiting insects. Because of this, goldenrod pollen cannot become airborne and can never make its way into your sinuses. The true cause of hayfever is the wind pollinated ragweeds, which broadcast copious amounts of lightweight pollen into the air.
