Golden Rod's Appearance

It grows in abundance during summer. The plants are topped with pillowy yellow blooms, and the flower is classified as a weed in some gardens since it grows so aggressively. It has several uses. The plant is a safe covering for insect larvae and is very attractive to butterflies. These flowers are easy to grow and give your garden a refreshing color.


They are a nectar source for bees and butterflies, and these insects facilitate pollination. You'll notice that these tiny creatures will stay in your yard for extended periods when they are there. The flowers also attract insects that are beneficial for the garden. These insects ward off bugs that can harm the stems and leaves of the goldenrod.

Golden Rod are also disease-resistant, making them a perfect addition to a low-maintenance garden. To keep them from growing in areas where you don't want them, plant the flowers in containers or place barriers in your garden bed so the underground spread of the plant is confined to one space.

Most species are native to the U.S. These perennial plants thrive on rainwater, adding aesthetic appeal to any landscape. They are often accused of causing seasonal allergies. However, ragweed, the cause of summer allergies, pollinates simultaneously with goldenrods, so people frequently confuse the two.

Golden Rod starts flowering near the end of summer and into the fall. It grows between 1 1/2 to 5 feet tall and best in full sun. You may have to stake the taller plants to keep them from bending over too far.

Pruning the flowers back at the start of summer will help them grow more like pushes than independent blooms. These plants develop best in hardiness zones 3-9.
