Do You Know this Flower?

The Answer: 'Fireworks' Goldenrod Solidago rugosa 'Fireworks'

At 3-4' tall, 'Fireworks' is more compact than most of the species and flowers more heavily. A lacy dome of golden flowers looks like exploding fireworks providing nectar and pollen for bees and butterflies in early fall.

The golden-yellow flowers arch gracefully downward like glittering trails from an exploding skyrocket. This late summer/early fall bloomer is indispensable for mixing with other late blooming perennials. A very easy plant to grow, it thrives in any compost enriched soil and appreciates regular moisture.

"If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of a least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in."

Rachel Carson, naturalist and author
