One of the smallest species of goldenrod and also one of the latest to bloom. Produces a mass of bright yellow flowers. Tolerates very poor soil and is excellent for xeriscaping and rock gardens. It is an under-utilized species that is shorter and less aggressive than common goldenrod. Has a tendency to form colonies at a suitable suite. Attracts butterflies, bees and birds.
