Classy clumps of greyish foliage and upright stems topped with fluffy heads of clear yellow flowers in late summer to 60cm or so. Drained soil in sun.
A very useful size plant and unusual in it's foliage and flower colour. In full sun and dryish soil the leaves can almost be silvery grey, greener in damper soils. The yellow flowers are towards the acid-yellow end of the spectrum and not the dull golden yellow more commonly associated with goldenrod.
There is a cultivar: 'Golden Rocket' which seems to be nothing more than a selling name for the wild type plant.
Native to central USA and Canada. Syn Oligoneuron rigida var humile.
