    Solidago rugosa, goldenrod

What: Solidago rugosa, or Fireworks, is an outstanding selection of one of the many species of goldenrod.
Why: Fireworks is an old-fashioned perennial that is easy to grow, long-blooming and very hardy. The tiny flowers are clustered into arching spires of brilliant yellow, bursting onto the scene in late July and continuing until autumn.
Where: Fireworks is one of the finest additions to the fall garden, combining well with other bold perennials.
Size: Reaches a height of 3 to 4 feet.
