Solidago sempervirens - Seaside Goldenrod
This variety of goldenrod is best in any landscape but shines near the water as it is salt tolerant. The great thing about goldenrods is they are late season bloomers and they are one of the last food sources for bees, bumbles and migrating butterflies. Goldenrods DO NOT cause allergies, you are sneezing because of Ragweed! Go ahead and add it to the garden.
