|'Golden Wings' is an easy to grow upright perennial, which does best in poor soil and full sun. Leaves are narrow and lance-shaped. Late summer to fall flowers are golden yellow and held in 10" long spreading panicles. Grows to 6' tall and spreads 36". Contrary to popular belief, goldenrod does not cause sinus problems, rather another, less noticeable plant (ragweed) that blooms at the same time, is the culprit. Great with black-eyed susan, mexican sage or other salvias, autumn joy sedum and pennisetum.
