Solidago rugosa

Wrinkleleaf goldenrod

Solidago rugosa is a yellow-flowering perennial native throughout the southeast. It is found in open woodlands, prairies, fields, and roadsides. It grows well in full sun sites, with moist to dry soils. It is fairly drought resistant, and grows up to four feet tall each season, but dies back completely in the winter. Leaving dormant stems up until spring provides necessary over-wintering habitat for pollinators. Drooping clusters of yellow flowers bloom from late summer into fall, and attract many pollinators. Birds eat the seeds in winter. Solidago rugosa works well as a specimen plant in a yard, or for restoration projects.
