Golden rod is a traditional border plant, but old varieties were tall, untidy and invasive compared with modern compact hybrids such as 'Goldenmosa'. This variety has large sprays of golden mimosa-like flower that last throughout late summer and early autumn on 75cm (30in) high stems, which are strong enough to stand without support. Their feathery shape and texture associates beautifully with all the large daisies, such as rudbeckia and helenium, and goes particularly well with an autumn mixture of mahogony, orange and yellow shades. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

I have been searching for Golden Rod for years, it was grown in the family garden when I was a small child. I was told that the fairies lived in the Golden Rod at the bottom of the garden and must have spent hours looking for them. I would like to plant some to tease my granddaughters. I thought the plant was lost, have not seen any in gardens of late and I am really happy now that I will be able to buy some.
