Golden-yellow beauty!

Native plants are hot - and no wonder! Gardeners love them for their beauty and ease. Plus, they attract wildlife and beneficial pollinators like butterflies, bees and birds.

We love this new golden-yellow beauty, Solidago shortii 'Solar Cascade', exclusively available from North Creek Nurseries, that's low-maintenance, attracts wildlife, and is drought tolerant and deer resistant. Gotta love it!
Description for all those wanting the skinny: The golden-yellow flowers enjoy full sun to part shade and bloom starting late summer and through fall. It's a clump forming perennial that shows well around borders, or mass plantings and reaches about knee-height (anywhere from 24-30 "- depending on your knee height) And, it looks great as a cut flower.

'Solar Cascade' is part of The American Beauties Native Plant collection. Proceeds from sales of plants benefit the National Wildlife Federation's Certified Wildlife Habitat Program. Very cool.
