Solidago ‘Little Lemon’ (Goldenrod) has a small compact growth, blooms for 4 weeks or more, and its light yellow color is a great contrast to other fall colors. This miniature golden rod will add color to your late summer/early fall garden, but will not contribute to hay fever. ‘Little Lemon’ will grow in normal to clay soil and doesn’t require a lot of water. It is great for cut flowers, it is rabbit resistant, and the spent flower stalks can provide winter interest.
