Adding to cart… The item has been added

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 have been buying native plants from various sources, and this nursery by far has been the best. From the amazing selection of hard to find native plants, to extreme care in packaging and shipping the plants, to the plants themselves, everything is perfect. The plants arrive in beautiful shape, look very healthy and well taken care for, and the root ball is well established but not pot bound. This will be my go to nursery for all the plants on my list.

    Arrived in great shape, healthy and packaged well as always. All of the plants I have bought from this store has done fantastic. They are so much better than bareroot plants from other stores.

    as always: awesome, healthy, good-sized plants

    Posted by Mickey Schafer on Oct 14th 2022

    This is not the first time I've purchased from Mail Order Natives, and the latest purchase is as good as every other one. In fact, I wish there was a picture function on the review so that I could show how healthy these plants are. Having ordered a ton of plants online, I am sincerely grateful that every plant from M.O.N. has healthy, white, well-developed root systems and plants are fully one-gallon in size. For every other company, I lower my expectations to 80% of an order will be good plants and many will be plugs recently moved into a bigger pot or labeled as "pot sized" when they are really a barely developed root plug that struggles to survive planting. Emily's plants THRIVE once in the ground! They bloom, grow, produce fruit -- all of the things we want from plants. Currently, this is the *only* mail-order company I will use, having been repeatedly disappointed with bigger, more expensive outlets and big box stores.

    These were some of the greenest leaves I have ever seen anywhere, let alone from a mail order!! Plus, I’m pretty sure I got two healthy plants for the price of one! These babies went straight in the ground, and they’re doing great. They were in the same box as my Waxmyrtle, and because of the careful packaging, everything arrived in awesome shape! I will be ordering more in the near future. Thank you

    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. :-)
