Pricing & Availability
Solidago caesiaAlso known as:
Solidago caesia is one of the most elegant of goldenrods. Its purplish, gently arching stems are covered in their entirety with loose clusters of bright yellow flowers, the highest concentration of which occurs toward the tips. It has a long blooming period of about a month, ranging from late summer to mid-fall.
Wreath goldenrod is easy to grow and adaptable. It is very tolerant of shaded conditions, performs exceptionally well in part-sun to dappled light, and moist to dry well-drained soil. It might require additional watering when grown in full sun, but is otherwise considered drought resistant. It is not particularly aggressive and is a good selection for a cottage garden or perennial flower bed. Zones 4-9
Propagate from seed or division.
Deer resistant and very attractive to pollinators. Goldenrods get a bad rap for being aggressive, which this one is not, and for triggering allergies, which is utterly false.
