Details

Bright, cheerful yellow Goldenrod is favorited by Monarch butterflies and hordes of other pollinators who rely on its nectar-rich blooms to carry them through the end of the season. Allow flowerheads to remain in place over the winter to create a habitat for birds and small insects. Hummingbirds, goldfinches, and other small birds feed on Goldenrod’s nectar and seeds. This native wildflower thrives in full-sun areas and dry or average soils. Deer-resistant.
