Overview

 

Blue-stemmed Goldenrod, sometimes referred to as Wreath Goldenrod, is a well-behaved woodland species. It forms attractive loose clumps with arching stems and long, thin leaves. Small clusters of bright yellow flowers form in the leaf axils for about half the stem’s length. Stem color in mature plants has a dark, somewhat bluish tone.

Liked for native plant gardens, open woodland gardens, borders, wild gardens, cottage gardens, meadows or butterfly gardens.

 

Companion Plants

Try pairing Solidago caesia with Aster cordifolius, Chasmanthium latifolium, Chrysogonum virginianum, Heliopsis helianthoides or Amsonia hubrichtii.

Care Checklist

Plants are tough. Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade, and does not spread aggressively as do some of the other goldenrod species and hybrids.
