Goldenrod (Solidago cutleri 'Goldrush')
sol-ih-DAY-go KUT-ler-eye
Genus:  Solidago
'Goldrush' heralds the coming of fall with masses of tiny, yellow flowers for four weeks in August and September. Its compact size—about a foot tall—makes it a great candidate for a rock garden or border edge.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  Reliable, end-of-season color; compact size.
Care:  Grow in lean to moderately fertile, well-drained soil in full sun; some species prefer shade. Deadhead to prevent prolific self-seeding.
Propagation:  Divide in spring or fall.
Problems:  Spot anthracnose, powdery mildew, rust, fungal spots.
