A beautiful golden plume of flowers blooms from late summer into fall amongst a backdrop of upright rich green foliage.  This clump-forming species does not spread aggressively by rhizomes as some Goldenrods.  An important late-season food source for pollinating insects, including Monarch butterflies.  The seedheads provide a source of food for overwintering birds.  Appreciates a well-drained sunny location but isn't fussy about soil type.  Can withstand periods of drought once established.

Mature size: 4-6 ft tall

Minimum temperature: -40° F
