This Florida native perennial produces a tight clump of narrow sword shaped leaves topped by leafy, erect or arching 4 to 6 foot stalks of golden yellow flowers. Seaside goldenrod is salt tolerant, since its used to growing in salty areas like dunes or seashores, and it is quite drought tolerant and doesn’t mind poor sandy soils. We love this plant because it’s hardy, easy to grow, good for birds and showy in the garden.
