Solidago rugosa Fireworks Goldenrod

Write a Review
Current Stock:

Solidago rugosa 'Fireworks' semi-evergreen foliage; mounding habit when in bloom; named appropriately because the golden yellow blooms have a "weeping" look, just like fireworks in the sky. Goldenrods are among the most important late-season pollinator plants. Honey bees feast on goldenrod nectar before winter. Butterflies and many other pollinators rely on goldenrods as a major food source. Beekeepers often use goldenrods as the primary food source for winter.  Some sources report that goldenrod nectar has an average sugar concentration of 33%.

    I received my fireworks golden rod in excellent condition. After a week of extreme heat, for the end of September, in St. Augustine, FL my new plants are thriving. They have responded well to the move and I cannot wait to see them in full glory in my pollinator garden next year.

    Received 5 well packaged plants with elaborate healthy root systems. Planted on Oct 14th in Minnesota! We'll see how they fare over winter and if they come back in spring. I am optimistic that they will. :-)
