The Plant Store will re-open for sales the week of May 13th, 2024 for local pickup

  • Please see the Using the Plant Library  page  for some tips on how to make the most of the information here to select species for creating a healthy native plant community suited to the conditions of your site.
  • I'm currently working on shifting the store part of this site over to more complex software that will allow for filtering by multiple plant traits and making wish lists of species you would like to order, so please bear with me when it comes to announcing the exact species offerings for 2024 (there will be lots, including some species not previously offered).

Euthamia graminifolia, Grass-leaved Goldenrod

Euthamia graminifolia
Grass-leaved Goldenrod or Flat-top Goldenrod

  • Full sun to light shade
  • 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.

Species that were not sown / aren't being sown for 2023 are marked with an * 
Species that are native to this continent, but not historically native to Ontario are marked with a ~ 
While it rarely comes up, I do reserve the right to limit plant quantities, mostly to help ensure that as many native plant gardens as possible become a reality
