This North American native tolerates a wide range of soil types, and is attractive to native bees and butterflies. This perennial has a tendency to spread, so be thoughtful about where you plant it. Full sun. Seeds germinate best after cold-stratification. Press seeds lightly into soil, as they need light to germinate.

Goldenrod is very adaptable and will naturalize readily. Choose a site with full sun to partial shade.
Seeds need a period of cold, moist conditions for optimal germination. Direct sow outdoors in fall or stratify seed in a refrigerator for 8-12 weeks before sowing. Sow seeds ¼" deep and 4-6" apart. Seeds will sprout in 10-21 days. Thin seedlings so that mature plants are 12" apart.
Keep adequately moist for first year until plants become well established. Somewhat drought tolerant once established.
Harvest for cut flowers anytime, or leave for the pollinators!
Goldenrod is a hardy perennial whose seed matures in late summer/fall. Seed is ready to harvest when dry and brown. Store seeds in a cool, dry place. Seeds are viable for 5-7 years.
