Details

28-32" tall x 18-24"+ wide (cutting propagated). Enjoy this variety's magnificent sprays of tiny yellow flowers that light up the late summer/early fall garden. 'Peter Pan' (a German hybrid also known as 'Goldstrahl') is very different from our other large growing Goldenrod cultivar 'Fireworks'. However, it's just as easy-to-grow and is a fine companion for so many other late season blooming perennials. In trials at the Chicago Botanic Garden, this is a top rated variety for its showy flowers and mildew resistance. 'Fireworks' and 'Golden Fleece' were also rated as top performers in this invaluable genus of native plants.

Planting Guides

Growing Solidago (Goldenrod)
This is a group of summer/fall blooming native wildflowers that are easy-to-grow and provide ample nectar for butterflies and bees. Goldenrods are resistant to browsing rabbits and deer. Contrary to popular belief, these perennials DON'T cause allergies; their pollen is sticky, not windblown, and is moved from plant to plant by bees.

    Preferred growing conditions:
  • They grow easily in all types of soil including clay.
  • Goldenrod benefits from mulching in hot, dry climates and is amenable to most common types of mulch, including crushed gravel in xeriscapes.
  • After their second growing season, Solidago only requires deep but infrequent watering.
  • Plant in full, hot sun.
  • Just a few handfuls of compost and Yum Yum Mix in the planting hole is enough. It’s not necessary to plant into a rich, highly amended soil.
    • Special comments:
    • These perennials are easily divided in the spring if they get too large for their planting spot or you if want to have additional plants elsewhere in your landscape.
    • Garden care:
    • Fertilize Solidago just once in fall with Yum Yum Mix and Planters II.
    • Leave them standing over the winter and cut back to 1-2" inches above the soil in mid- to late spring when the plants begin to wake up.

Q & A

Suggested Companion Plants:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
