Canada Goldenrod - 7,000'
Grow a glorious stand of Goldenrod this year. Tall, showy bright yellow blooms attract pollinators like bees and butterflies. Highly adaptable - it likes to grow. Although I find it near the river, it can grow dry and moist. It can grow in half shade or full sun. Give it room as it can reach 3-6'. Blooms in fall. Remember, it's the Ragweed, (Ambrosia spp.) flaring up your allergies - not the Goldenrod - but they bloom at the same time!
Medicinal. The name 'Solidago' means 'to make whole'.
Moist stratify for 1-2 months or plant in fall or very early spring. Sow lightly, seed is small.
