Solidago nemoralis - Gray Goldenrod

Comming Soon
  • This plant is a good choice for difficult locations, such as sunny slopes or open areas with poor soil, where little else will grow. Pair it with White Goldenrod for a lovely Autumn mix of yellow and white blooms.  They are both short, drought tolerant species that grow best in full sun, and will even do well in gravelly soils.
