Pot Size: full quart


Plant Description

Over its natural range in the east, Solidago sphacelata grows on rocky bluffs and in open woods flowering in early fall on two-foot stems. However, 'Golden Fleece', another Mt. Cuba introduction, grows no taller than 18 inches in just about any soil in sun or part shade and can form an evergreen nearly weed proof groundcover. Bright yellow flowers are densely packed in narrow wand-like racemes in late summer and early fall. Good flowers for butterflies and bees. Its low, spreading growth and ease of culture make it a good choice for naturalizing in difficult places when a low plant is wanted.
