Golden Solidaster x solidaster luteusRegular price $12.00 Save $-12.00
This lovely little plant Solidaster is an intergeneric hybrid, which is a cross between an Aster and Solidago (goldenrod) originating in Lyon, France at the Leonard Lille Nursery way back in 1910. The “X” in front of the genus name indicates that it is a cross between two genera. The specific epithet name “luteus” means yellow, in reference to the flower colour.
In summer and into late autumn, the plants have a profusion of delicate aster like pretty lemon flowers that are held on airy sprays above the plant. Excellent dried and often commercially grown overseas as a cut flower so a perfect choice for the cut flower patch or the flower farmer. Lasts well in a vase at around 7-10 days. Loved by butterflies this little plant is super easy to grow and very well behaved. It is not overly fussy on soil but does appreciate good drainage. It is also happy in full sun or partial shade. Easily divided to give you more plants in spring.
