Missouri goldenrod is a drought-tolerant grassland species that is at home high on our sunny hillsides. It has a weakly rhizomatous habit, meaning it will send up suckers here and there, but it is nowhere near as aggresive as the water-loving Canada goldenrod. It tends to grow slowly outward and form a dense colony.  Spikes of yellow flowers are a valuable resource to pollinators in the late summer when most other flowers are long gone. 

 

The low growth habit if the leaves make Missouri goldenrod a good option for filling space in between bunchgrasses or towards the front of a dry sunny border. Plant with blanket flower, sticky geranium, pussytoes, and white prairie aster for a full season of blooms.
