Ohio Goldenrod has a compact form that belies its large exuberant floral display, late in the season. The superb foliage with lush, lance-like leaves radiates out from the base. Excellent for moist clay, it also thrives in good garden soil.

All Goldenrods support a host of pollinator and insect activity, and this goldenrod is no exception. A couple of interesting and beautiful moths – the Wavy-Lined Emerald, and Green Leuconyctause this goldenrod as a larval host, as do numerous other smaller moths.

Planting and Cultivation Notes
Goldenrods are often mistakenly blamed as the cause of hay fever - an allergic reaction to wind-borne pollen. But they, and most native wildflowers, do not have wind-borne pollen. Instead, the pollen is moved from bloom to bloom by bees, butterflies and other pollinators.
