Solidago sempervirens, commonly known as Seaside Goldenrod, is a native perennial prized for its vibrant golden-yellow flowers, salt tolerance, and ecological importance in coastal habitats.


Solidago sempervirens is a resilient perennial herb that typically grows to heights of 2 to 4 feet tall, with upright stems adorned with narrow, lance-shaped leaves that remain green year-round. From late summer to fall, the plant produces dense clusters of small, bright golden-yellow flowers that attract pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and other insects. Seaside Goldenrod is commonly found in coastal dunes, salt marshes, and sandy soils, where it adds a splash of color and provides essential habitat and food for various wildlife species.

Growing Conditions:

- Thrives in sandy or sandy-loam soil with good drainage.

- Prefers full sun but can tolerate partial shade.

- Hardy in USDA zones 7-10, making it well-suited to the coastal regions of North Florida.

- Tolerates salt spray and saltwater inundation, making it ideal for coastal landscapes.



- Cut back the plant in late winter to early spring to remove dead or damaged foliage and promote fresh growth.

- Divide clumps every few years to rejuvenate the plant and prevent overcrowding.

- Mulch around the base of the plant to conserve moisture and suppress weeds.

- Fertilize lightly in spring with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer to support healthy growth.

Wildlife Attraction:

- The flowers of Seaside Goldenrod are highly attractive to pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and other insects, enhancing biodiversity in the garden.

- Provides habitat and food for various species of birds and butterflies, which feed on the seeds and use the plant for shelter and nesting sites.
