Additional Information about Solidago rugosa 'Fireworks'

Goldenrod (Solidago) is unfairly blamed for being the source of pollen or allergens which affect those who suffer from hay fever. Pollen from goldenrod is too heavy to travel by air whereas ragweed pollen, which is released close in time to that of solidago, is easily carried and is the true source of this discomfort. 

Growing & Maintenance Tips for Solidago rugosa 'Fireworks'

Grow in a moderately moist soil in full sun. Will tolerate drier conditions once established. Unlike other species in this genus, this goldenrod tolerates soils that are moist.
