Solidago caesia

Blue-stemmed, or wreath goldenrod, is one of the more well-behaved in the Solidago family. Tall, blue-tinged stems gracefully bow under the weight of the clusters of bright yellow flowers.


Wreath goldenrod tolerates poor soils including dry, sandy and rocky, and is drought tolerant once established in the garden. This perennial is easy to grow, low maintenance, and is an excellent choice for a pollinator garden.
