The Plant store is now closed for orders.

  • I'm planning on one last round of sales toward the end of September of plants that I'll be potting up from a nursery bed I planted in the fall of 2022. I'll post the details and the time once I have the plants ready to go

Euthamia graminifolia
Grass-leaved Goldenrod or Flat-top Goldenrod

  • Average soil and moisture but adaptable to both dry and wet conditions.
  • Grows 2' to 3' tall in my observation but may be taller in wetter settings. Spreads fairly quickly.
  • Summer Blooms
  • Ontario Native, Thrives in Meadow Ecosystems

Although these aren’t actually a member of the Solidago family, their brilliant gold blooms, popularity with a wide range of small critters and a general capacity to carry on, no matter what life throws at them, means that they fit right in with their common-name sakes.

I think they would fit right into a wildflower garden or a medium to dry mixed meadow planting. In a dryish site they aren’t likely to overwhelm neighbours of similar heights. They can be quite assertive in areas with consistent moisture and would play best with other species that are also assertive or accomplished at holding their space, like Red Monarda, Wild Bergamot, Obedient Plant, Prairie Sundrops (Oenothera pilosella), Canada Anemone, Golden Groundsel and Joe-Pye Weed.

Their heigh in dry locations been around 18” to 30” but they can stretch to around 40” in wetter areas.

They enjoy sun but will get by with part day shade, as long as they have a few hours of direct rays.
