Solidago 'Solar Cascade' is a selection of the federally endangered Solidago shortii...a native only to a few small populations in Indiana and adjacent Kentucky. Solidago shortii is similar to Solidago rugosa with short rhizomes compared to more aggressive spreading species. In the wild it is found on alkaline clay slopes, but is well adapted to most garden conditions. The 30" tall stalks are topped from late August through October with showy panicles of gold...a hummingbird treat. If you enjoy rare natives like this, please contribute to your state's efforts to preserve natural rare plant habitats while you rail against ridiculous federal laws that limit their propagation and sale.
