A great late-blooming flower for hot, dry locations!
This goldenrod is typically found in open grasslands and hot hillsides, and does well in hell strips and open areas. Its late blooms are important nectar and pollen sources for male Agapostemon bees, long-horned bees, and young queen bumblebees. A bit shorter than other goldenrods, this flower will slowly spread, but is easy to control.
