Solidago rigida is notable for its impressive height and vibrant yellow blooms. Its adaptability to a variety of light and moisture conditions makes it versatile for landscaping applications. In Virginia, it thrives in dry or clayey soils originating from magnesium-rich bedrock. It is well-suited for erosion control and finds applications in ornamental uses, prairie restoration, and highway roadside plantings. Direct sow 1/4" deep in the fall after the first frost or in late spring. Indoors start 6-8 weeks before planting date. While stratification is not mandatory for these seeds, it can enhance germination.
