  • Unique Cut Flowers Work in Either Rustic or Modern Arrangements
  • Adds Structure to the Background of Your Plantings

  • Goldenrod Doesn't Cause Allergies...the Culprit is Actually Ragweed Pollen!

Let the banner yet wave during the last few moments of summer! Celebrate the end of the season with this showy modern cultivar of an important native flowering perennial.

Add the unmistakable downturned arching panicles of Fireworks Goldenrod (Solidago rugosa 'Fireworks') to your landscape this season. This named variety has graced residential gardens without becoming aggressive.

Let the brilliant branching clusters of bright yellow flowers explode into vibrant color for an amazing finale. With a mounding, clump-forming habit, Fireworks Goldenrod reliably provides end-of-season color.

These large-scale perennials make an exceptional backdrop to Asters, Butterfly Bushes, and the remaining Coneflowers and Rudbeckia in the fall perennial border. This special plant looks custom-made for LIttle Bunny Fountain Grass!

Just like its namesake, the streaming flower panicles radiate downwards and resemble fireworks. Its tall shrub form, rough-textured stems and dark green leaves give great structure in the garden all year, even without the flowers!

Consider it your patriotic duty to gently educate people on the benefits of this special native pollinator plant. The large pollen of Goldenrod is unfairly accused of causing seasonal allergies...but the real "sneezeweed" is ragweed, which blooms about the same time.

On large properties, it looks right at home in Cottage Gardens, wild meadow gardens or any naturalized area. This is an especially good selection for a planned Rain Garden as it doesn't mind wet soils or clay soils.

The ideal site for this plant would be in slightly acidic, moist, well-drained soils in full sun or light shade. However, this durable selection is widely adaptable.

Bees, butterflies and birds love it for shelter and nectar, but deer won't bother it. Celebrate the best of our showy native plants with Fireworks Goldenrod from Nature Hills today!
