Cliff goldenrod is a Missouri native perennial which, as the common name suggests, is found on cliffs, bluffs and ledges throughout the Ozark region of the State. Solidago drummondii Cliff goldenrod typically grows 12 to 24 inches tall on arching stems. Goldenrods have been wrongfully accused of causing hay fever which is actually an allergic reaction to wind-borne pollen from other plants such as ragweed. Goldenrods are attractive to bees and butterflies. Interesting goldenrod for native plant gardens, rock gardens or borders. This Midwest native is found at home on alkaline rock cliffs and ledges in the Ozark Mountain region. Unfortunately, Solidago drummondii was lumped it in with the southeast native S. rugosa, which is a completely different plant. Solidago drummondii Cliff goldenrod forms a tight clump 3' wide and 18" tall of arching stems, covered in September with sprays of golden yellow flowers. The habit, grow ability, and disease resistance is superb on this great native...this is one of my favorite wildflowers for the butterfly garden.
