Rudbeckia, Autumn Forest (Organic)
Rudbeckia hirta. 60-80 days.
High quality selection of a North American native wildflower. 4-5″ wide flowers are bicolor with yellow tipped petals and dark orange-red centers. Blooms profusely beginning in July / August and continues until frost. Excellent cut flower with easy to cut long stems. Big, 2′ tall bushes fill out well and make great accent and/or border plantings. We grow it as an annual, but Autumn Forest Rudbeckia may be a perennial in zone 9b or warmer. Transplant into a sunny, well-drained location. Aka, Gloriosa Daisy.
