Goldenrod Plant: The goldenrod is a herbaceous perennial wildflower that is a close relative in the daisy family, despite looking very different than other daisies. It is a tall, lovely flower, famous for its bright and sunny yellow flowers that will grow well across most moderately warm USDA plant hardiness zones.
As a native plant, the goldenrod is remarkably resilient. It is drought-tolerant, heat-tolerant, disease-resistant, and pest-resistant. Furthermore, it is unfussy about soil type, quality, or compaction.
It's Time to Reconsider the Goldenrod Plant for the Lovely Wildflower
Is it time to reconsider the inclusion of the goldenrod plant in our gardens?
For decades, American gardeners considered this wildflower a weed and removed it from their gardens. Despite that abuse, this hardy flower flourishes along ditch banks, highways, and other surprising places without human assistance. That ability to grow almost anywhere--without help--is a testimony to the flower's tolerance to challenges.
Goldenrod is essential to the ecosystem. Its bright colors attract pollinator species, including bumblebees, butterflies, moths, and birds. It is beneficial in a pollinator garden, especially when you add it near fruits or vegetables that need the help of pollinators to yield the most bountiful harvest.
The Tall and Colorful Goldenrod Is an Herb; It's Not a Weed
Let's debunk an urban legend--goldenrod and ragweed are not the same species. For too long, people have blamed goldenrod for fall allergies. While it does have pollen (as all flowers do!), it is a different plant from the common ragweed.
This herb is lovely when you plant it in these locations:
- ● In a natural area,
- ● Rock garden,
- ● Cutting garden,
- ● In a garden border (near the middle or back),
- ● Mass planting around a home's foundation,
- ● Pollinator garden.
The goldenrod is relatively tall--as much as five feet high--but most stay shorter than that. They have rich golden yellow heads comprised of clusters of numerous small, multi-petaled flowers.
