Oligoneuron ohioenseAlso known as:
Oligoneuron ohioense was until recently classified as Solidago ohioensis. It is remarkable among goldenrods for its large oblong basal foliage, and its showy flat-topped yellow flower clusters (umbels), that seem over-sized for the plant. This is a compact species, with attractive foliage along the entire length of the flowering stems that grow to a height of 3' to 4'. The bloom period is from mid-summer to early fall, after which the dried flower heads will provide visual interest well into winter.
The native range of Ohio goldenrod includes wet prairies and meadows, riverbanks, and low-lying, poorly drained areas with heavy clay. However, it adapts very well to average garden conditions, in moist, well-drained soil, and part to full sun. An excellent addition to any perennial border or cottage garden, where its late season performance is sure to be a show stopper. Zones 4-6
Propagate from seed, following a period of cold, dry stratification. Clump division is best performed in fall, as soon as the plant enters its dormancy period.
Oligoneuron ohioense is a rare, and underutilized species that is worthy of more attention. It is very attractive to bees, butterflies, and birds. It can also be considered deer resistant.
