Solidago rugosa 'Fireworks'

The name 'Fireworks' suits this selection well. The dazzle of long, lateral, golden-flowered stems radiating out from the main stem of this tough perennial does suggest a 4th of July display, although this goldenrod blooms much later than that celebration. Slow spreading and much shorter than the species, this East Coast native is attractive to all kinds of wild-life, including bees and hummingbirds. Soldago rugosa `Fireworks' can tolerate wet conditions if there is good drainage, but is quite happy in regular garden situations companioned with other later blooming perennials.
