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).

Solidago ptarmicoides, Upland White Goldenrod 

Solidago ptarmicoides

Upland White Goldenrod 

  • Full sun to very light shade
  • Well drained to dry or even gravely soils
  • 1' to 2' tall and wide
  • Summer Blooms
  • Ontario Native Species, For well drained gardens or meadows

Still new to my gardens but from what I've seen online, these seem to thrive in shallow and rocky soils, where the callenging conditions keep competition to a minimum.

Missouri Botanical Garden has a description of them here

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
