Solidago 'Little Lemon'

Goldenrod truly shines in the fall garden, with its lanclet like flower wands packed with golden yellow blooms. Pollinators love this plant as much as gardeners, and it forgives heat and dry soils. Don't be fooled by the common myth that this is a major allergen plant--the pollen is sticky and travels by bees; it is not airborne.
