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).

Details
10-12" tall x 15" wide (cutting propagated). This delightful new Goldenrod is appreciated in the perennial garden for its full, bright lemon-yellow flower spikes and compact, dwarf habit. Its small stature makes it invaluable for use as an edging plant or upfront in the perennial border. A fall bloomer, 'Little Lemon' thrives in most any garden soil and does fine in partial shade. A wonderful companion plant for fall blooming Agastache cana or fall blooming asters. Contrary to popular belief, Solidago doesn't cause allergies; its pollen is sticky, not windblown, and is moved from plant to plant by bees.

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.
