Zig Zag Goldenrod, or Solidago flexicaulis, is a must-have for the late season native or wildflower meadow. Give this easy-to-grow wildflower plenty of room to spread and it will soon naturalize, creating habitat for a variety of pollinators and wildlife. Growing to be 12-36”, Zig Zag Goldenrod is the perfect choice for shady woodland areas as it is deer resistant and extremely low maintenance.

Contrary to popular belief, Goldenrod does not cause hay fever. This common allergic reaction is usually caused by pollen from plants such as ragweed.
