Native to the Eastern and Northeastern United States, Solidago rigida (Stiff Goldenrod) reaches about 5’ in height. This perennial wildflower prefers full sun and is drought-tolerant. Easy to grow and adaptable, Stiff Goldenrod blooms in August-September, adding late-season color to the garden. Contrary to popular belief, Solidago doesn't cause allergies; its pollen is sticky, not windblown, and is moved from plant to plant by bees.
