Goldenrod (Solidago spp.)

These wonderful splashes of vivid yellow throughout prairies are a lovely addition to butterfly gardens. Goldenrod will grow almost everywhere as they are native throughout North America.

Goldenrod does not cause sneezing like people originally thought, which is great for the home gardeners.

These are great late season flowers that migrating butterflies will love to visit. Pollinators will come from miles around to visit these nectar and pollen filled jewels.
