Fireworks is well named. In late summer, the bright yellow sprays of tiny flowers look just like an exploding skyrocket on the 4th of July. A tall sturdy grower, it is a great companion for ornamental grasses and other late summer blooming perennials.

from Trinidad, co
I love this plant. After seeing some of the poorer reviews, I am left scratching my head. Maybe they received a bad batch? Mine thrived from the word go. I have it in the NW corner of my house at about 7000 feet in altitude in Colorado. It has gorgeous flowers. I never have to water it. It comes back year after year. It's spreading slowly in the area in which it's planted. I really have nothing but good things to say about it. I planted it over 3 years ago and am very happy with it. Got it from High Country Gardens, too.

I bought this to add late season color to supplement my asters. I was disappointed to learn that a 5" deep pot is only 1-2 inches wide (from memory, not exact). I was expecting a quart sized pot. This was a very small plant. I've had this plant in the garden for three months and while its grown it is nowhere near the advertised size. You can see in the image below that is about the size of my spade and is only 4-5 inches tall. If this is one that blooms in the second season I would appreciate it if they would note that. Now I am left with a 4sqft empty space in my border.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Merchant response: Good Afternoon Greg,We apologize that your Solidago rugosa Fireworks plant was not satisfactory in size! We do ship smaller sized plants, since we find that they tend to acclimate and grow a lot better than a larger plant that may have become root bound. All of the information about our shipped pot sizes can be found on the website. I do see that the issue has already been resolved, but if you should require any further assistance, please do not hesitate to call us at 800.925.9387; we are available Monday to Friday 9am to 7pm EST and also on Saturday 9am to 5pm. Happy Gardening!

About Me Master Gardener
Lovely, arching foliage with bright clear yellow blossoms, this goldenrod is a great perennial. In rich soil it can get aggressive, but is very easy to remove. It is a great plant to pass along to other gardeners. Definitely would purchase again.

Fireworks? A dud!

Died within a week of planting. Root system seemed underdeveloped.
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.
