|'Loddon Gold' is an easy to grow upright perennial, which does best in average soil (not too fertile) and full sun. Leaves are narrow and lance-shaped. Late summer to fall flowers are rich dark yellow and held in 8" long conical panicles. Grows to 36" tall and spreads 18". 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.
