Goldenrod is easy to grow in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun. It is a very forgiving plant and tolerates poor, dry soils, clay, and drought. Growing to a height of five feet or more, it  displays small, bright yellow flowers in dense clusters on top of tall stems from July through September. The plant naturalizes quickly in the garden and it may be advisable to divide it every two or three years to control spread; deadheading spent flower clusters prevents seed dispersal as well as encouraging further blooms.
