36" tall x 24" wide (cutting propagated). What a perfect name for this spectacular Goldenrod! The golden-yellow flowers arch gracefully downward like glittering trails from an exploding skyrocket. This late summer/early fall bloomer is indispensable for mixing with other late-blooming perennials. A very easy plant to grow, it thrives in any compost-enriched soil and appreciates regular moisture. Cut back in mid-spring to 3” in height. Contrary to popular belief, Solidago doesn't cause allergies; its pollen is sticky, not windblown, and is moved from plant to plant by bees.
