Stiff Goldenrod - Organic


Stiff Goldenrod - Organic

Oligoneuron rigidum 2-5' tall. Also called Rigida.

Formerly classified as a member of the Solidago genus and recently reclassified as an Oligoneuron. Grower Gene Ripley said it best: “Rigida displays the gorgeous yellow-gold vibrancy of goldenrod, but packed into a dense, showy, flat-topped cluster, with attractive lush slate-green foliage that you’d never recognize as a goldenrod. The pollinators absolutely love it, like all goldenrods, but Rigida draws them in without looking weedy or common. My favorite kind of plant: a native pollinator magnet that holds its own in the garden on looks alone!” Excellent cutflower.

Plant in full sun to part shade in rich well-drained soil. Z3. Maine Grown. (bare-root crowns)

Additional Information

Herbaceous Perennial Plants

When you receive your order, open the bags and check the stock immediately. Roots and crowns should be firm and pliable. Surface mold is harmless and will not affect the plant’s future performance. Store plants in their packaging in a cool (35–40°) location until you are ready to plant. If it’s going to be awhile, you can pot up your perennials.

Do not plant bare-root perennial plant crowns directly outdoors before danger of frost has passed. Wet and/or cold conditions for an extended period may cause rotting.
