COLOURS AND SHAPES
So the Solidago is all about enjoying golden yellow. It looks like summer relaxation wafting over you in different shades. The flower plumes end in a point that points to the beautiful things in life. Bees love it too. Logical!
Solidago has so many meanings that you can choose what suits you best. Or what suits the occasion, of course. Go for mental sincerity, money, success or luck. Not for nothing does she have the nickname 'golden staff'. She also provides support in a difficult time. But there is more beauty. Place the bright yellow in a vase by the front door for good luck and give a big cheerful bunch to someone who could use encouragement and growth. See a Solidago shining in nature? Then start digging like mad. According to a legend, there is a treasure buried there!
We have been enjoying this flower of North American origin since 1645. This is in contrast to the Chinese and Japanese, who see the plant, which is feral there, as a pest.
The striking yellow panicles have been used since ancient times by North American Indians for their beneficial properties. Solidago therefore comes from sturdy (solidus) and make (ago).
