Golden Rod

Golden Rod

Golden Rod (Solidago rugosa) is a well-known ‘cottage garden’ late season perennial. We grow the variety ‘Fireworks’ mixed in with our ornamental grasses at Little Africa. It  is a slowly clump-forming cultivar flowering in late summer through to autumn. Its sprays of tiny yellow flowers are held in finer wands, making it rather more delicate than the usual upright form.

Our gardens are still looking stunning during September, with our exotic planting in full bloom. Remember if you are a RHS member you can get in for free from 1st September to 31st October.
