Solidago virgaurea 'Peter Pan'

Phonetic Spelling

Description

'Peter Pan' Goldenrod is a dwarf cultivar in the daisy family. Graceful sprays of tiny bright yellow flowers appear in late summer into fall near the ends of branches. Many types of pollinators are attracted to the flowers.

This goldenrod is small enough to use near the front of the border to provide late-season blooms. It isn't too picky about soil types as long as they have good drainage. Plant in full sun to partial shade. Drought tolerant once established and deer and rabbits tend to ignore it.
