Zig Zag goldenrod is not particularly needy with regard to nutrients and organic matter which is unusual for a woodland plant. It does not need mulching as it is very adaptable to dry conditions and will outcompete most weeds. It grows 1 to 3 feet tall in full shade to filtered light on average to dry soil conditions.
The leaves are 6 inches long, oval and toothed with flower heads blooming in loose clusters at the joints of crooked stems from late summer to fall. It is hardy from Zones 4 to 9. Zig Zag Goldenrods natural habitat is dry woods, thickets and clearnings from Ontario to Nova Scotia, south to Florida,
west to Texas and Oklahoma and north to Wisconsin.
A must for fall color in a dry shady spot.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day!
