Named by Linnaeus in honor of his teacher Olaf Rudbeck, this North American genus includes 25 to 30 species, many of them famous summer, especially late season, bloomers. These selections are easy to grow, make fine cut flowers, and will brighten any border or naturalized meadow. Offering interest also in the late fall and winter, they combine well with Aster, Eupatorium, and grasses.
This Rudbeckia’s sassy Dahlia-like mop of double lemon-yellow flowers promises to put a smile on your face. Perched atop wiry upstanding stems and handsome narrow-lobed green leaves, the shapely chartreuse-eyed daisies bloom for a long time, while creating a dramatic medium-sized counterpoint to Aconitum ‘Bressingham Spire’s vertical blue-violet shafts.
Blooms mid-July – September.
Size: 2-1/2' – 3' 0" high x 2' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
