Goldenrod, Ohio (Solidago speciosa) - 100 Seeds
•American grown seeds
•US Native Wildflower
•USDA Zones: 3-7
One of the prettiest Goldenrods, this native Goldenrod loves wet areas and marshes. It sports dark green foliage graced with clusters of golden blooms in the fall. This perennial makes a tremendous late-season pollen source for honeybees and is also known for its medicinal qualities where it has been used to reduce pain and swelling (inflammation), as a diuretic to increase urine flow, and to stop muscle spasms. Contrary to popular belief, this plant does not cause summer hay fever but simply happens to bloom at the same time as ragweed.
Direct sow in late fall, pressing into the surface of the soil since this plant needs light to germinate. For spring planting, mix the seeds with moist sand and store in the refrigerator for 60 days before planting. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination. Water seedlings occasionally until they become established. Mature plants prefer moist soil, though they do tolerate some drought. This plant attracts bees and butterflies. It will self-seed, though it does not usually become aggressive.
