Formerly classified as a member of the Solidago genus and recently reclassified as an Oligoneuron. Grower Gene Ripley said it best: “Rigida displays the gorgeous yellow-gold vibrancy of goldenrod, but packed into a dense, showy, flat-topped cluster, with attractive lush slate-green foliage that you’d never recognize as a goldenrod. The pollinators absolutely love it, like all goldenrods, but Rigida draws them in without looking weedy or common. My favorite kind of plant: a native pollinator magnet that holds its own in the garden on looks alone!” Excellent cutflower.
Plant in full sun to part shade in rich well-drained soil. Z3. Maine Grown. (bare-root crowns)
