Common Goldenrod plants have gotten a bad reputation for causing fall allergies, but this is untrue.

The pollen of the goldenrod is too heavy to be blown around by the wind and into people's noses. The blame for that goes to ragweed, which flowers around the same time.

This plant is as tough as it is graceful and does well in hardiness zones 3 to 9. It flowers in late summer and fall and grows from 1 to 6 feet tall. The flowers are tiny, but they appear in dense clusters of bright yellow to rich gold at the tips of the stems. Butterflies and bees adore them. The leaves are narrow and toothed. Not only does it brighten up a herbaceous garden when other flowers might be fading, but it dries beautifully.

Common Goldenrod is excellent in floral arrangements. Smaller specimens make an excellent ground cover.

The plant does best in well-drained loam that's just slightly acidic, but it is not overly fussy about soil as long as it's not soggy. Goldenrod does well in full sun to light shade and needs medium watering.

Another attribute of goldenrod is that it is a reasonably powerful healing herb. When dried, it makes an effective tea and tincture to treat inflammation and upper respiratory problems, including flu and colds. Gargling with golden rod eases symptoms of laryngitis and sore throat. Other people have been known to make wine out of the plant as well.Once established, the goldenrod doesn't need too much pampering. It does not suffer from significant diseases or pests.

Plant the seedlings about 18 to 24 inches apart. Tall varieties may need to be staked unless the gardener likes the way the stems gracefully bow beneath the weight of the flowers. It is best to let goldenrod naturalize, especially in meadow gardens, but division should propagate hybrids. Buy this plant from Tennessee Wholesale Nursery.
