Summary

Solidago rugosa ‘Fireworks’ is a striking, clump-forming perennial with stiff lateral electric-yellow inflorescences in early to mid-autumn that are reminiscent of exploding fireworks. This tough and robust cultivar of wrinkle-leaf goldenrod performs very well in full sun and seasonally dry soils reaching 3-4’ tall. Fireworks wrinkle-leaf goldenrod attracts many pollinating insects when flowering. It blooms for up to two weeks and is an excellent perennial border or meadow companion for Andropogon virginicus, Schizachyrium scoparium, Symphyotrichum oblongifolium ‘Raydon’s Favorite’, and Symphyotrichum laeve var. laeve ‘Bluebird’.
