A clump forming variety that spreads less aggressively; arching panicles of golden yellow flowers that attract bees and butterflies in fall; drought tolerant once established

Ornamental Features

Solar Cascade Goldenrod has masses of beautiful ray-like plumes of gold flowers at the ends of the stems from early to mid fall, which are most effective when planted in groupings. Its narrow leaves remain green in color throughout the season.

Planting & Growing

Solar Cascade Goldenrod will grow to be about 26 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 24 inches. When grown in masses or used as a bedding plant, individual plants should be spaced approximately 20 inches apart. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 10 years. As an herbaceous perennial, this plant will usually die back to the crown each winter, and will regrow from the base each spring. Be careful not to disturb the crown in late winter when it may not be readily seen!
