Solidago caesia happens to be one of my very favorite Autumn
blooming perennials. The bright, Primrose yellow brilliance of its
unusual zig-zag, axillary, long lasting flower heads never fail to garner
praise from garden visitors. One of the most commonly asked questions,
after I answer the "WOW...what is that?" question is
"Doesn't it make you sneeze?" Poor, poor Goldenrod, taking the
heat for Ambrosia artemisiifolia just because it coincidentally
shares the same window of time in flowering. Ambrosia artemisiifolia
is the dreaded allergen, "Ragweed!" Goldenrod pollen DOES
NOT cause an allergic reaction.
Solidago caesia is native to 32 states in the continental US
http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=SOCA4 from Maine to Texas
and 3 Canadian provinces. That said, I would think it to be hardy just
about anywhere. Although its native habitat is shade, it can handle part
sun. Moisture requirements are not high and I've grown it successfully in
average to dryish soil. Plant height is 18" - 36" if erect, but
it so often assumes a graceful arching habit.
The gargantuan populations of deer that roam these mountains and valleys
have never even raised an eyebrow at this plant.
YES, this is a "Goldenrod", not a weedy Goldenrod, but an
extremely desirable one and I highly recommend it for just about any
garden. Be it a native, natural, wild or formal garden, there's a place
for Solidago caesia.
I've been building a good stock of Solidago caesia to share with
you and now is a good time to plant them.
