Blue-stem goldenrodNews Flash: Not all goldenrods flowers cause allergies. This one does not!Every autumn Solidago spp. are wrongfully accused of causing allergies. Our goldenrod varieties are insect pollinated and have heavy sticky pollen.  The plants that do cause allergies and hayfever have lightweight wind borne pollen that is easily inhaled. Now you know!This clump forming, non-invasive native perennial boldly displays arching wands of golden clusters in September, contrasted by blue-green stems. Adds life to a dry shady spot. Great with Aster cordifolius. Incredible butterfly magnet and cut flower!  Native bees, wasps and pollinating flies seek nectar and pollen from the flowers. Plants host caterpillars of several moth species plusthe  seeds are eaten by songbirds Plants are tough and adaptable doing well in part sun (3 hrs.) or part shade even with average soil.  Individual plants can form small colonies from underground rhizomes or self-seeding. In dense shade stems may arch or bend a little - nothing that a minute with pruners cannot remedy.Solidago caesia is drought tolerant and somewhat unpalatable to deer and rabbits.Interesting Notes:For more information on this plant, visit the USDA Plants Database:https://plants.usda.gov/core/profile?symbol=SOCA4
