Solidago virgaurea ‘Praecox’

Early Goldenrod

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.494.100

A selection of a native European Golden Rod, this is the earliest form to flower in the border. Plants form an upright mound of deep-green leaves, bearing large clusters of golden-yellow flowers in midsummer. Stems are strong and should not need staking. This is a well-behaved garden plant, worthy of growing in any sunny border. Flowers do not cause allergies. Moist soil will help to prevent powdery mildew. Clumps may be easily divided in early spring. Attractive to butterflies.
