'Little Lemon' is a shorter goldenrod than most with a somewhat nicer flower. Blooms from July - September in my garden.

Bought this from the local nursery..first year had a bad rust. After planting, it came back in spring rust free. Started blooming early summer love the color (light yellow) It IS compact if you get the correct cultivar. I trim it back after flowering and I get repeat blooms. Will buy more.

This is a likable goldenrod. The color is light yellow of course and it lasts a very long time in late summer-fall. DOES NOT CAUSE ALLERGIES, that is ragweed that flowers at the same time. All solidago pollen is spread by direct physical forces/touch and not wind. This is the first spring in the ground after planting last summer. The plant is already getting ready to flower here in late June, early July. One problem I have had is my plants do not stay 12" tall, they get closer to 24-26" tall and fall apart. I may not have the true to name cultivar.
