Long, arching sprays of yellow flowers earn this goldenrod its name. Fireworks is a sturdy, clump forming goldenrod that makes a spectacular fall display. As a pollinator plant, goldenrods are always at the top of the list due to their long bloom time, universally accessible flowers, and abundance of both pollen and nectar. This goldenrod is a medium-fast spreader in the garden but can easily be divided every 3-4 years. The dense, arching stems covered in white, fluffy seed heads make for great winter interest and provide habitat and food for different animals. This is a naturally occurring cultivar that was discovered in the Sandhills of North Carolina. One plant can get big enough to make a great specimen plant, but if you have the space, several in a row can be an effective small hedge.
