Good Qualities

Good basal branching for a solidago, no rust!; Has great feel, nice clean foliage.

Stems rather short; Not quite as vigorous as I would like, some problems getting it to survive in field; Needs 2nd season before evaluation.

Not enough of it, am propagating; Bit ‘wild looking’.


Year 2

It was later than ‘Tara’ which is great; Nice red stems.
