A stunning and well behaved Golden Rod with purple flushed foliage, best in full sun. Open, elegant heads of long narrow branches covered in yellow flowers in late summer. 1.2m. Average to good soil.
If you only grow one Solidago then I'd suggest that 'Fireworks' should be that one. Clumps of strong, upright stems with distinct dusky foliage that gets quite a good reddish purple with plenty of sun.
The flowers are held in a more attractive fashion than the commoner species and associate very well with late summer flowering perennials like Persicaria amplexicaulis and various ornamental grasses including Panicum virgatum and Miscanthus.
Syn. Solidago 'Feuerwerke'.
