Rudbeckia hirta Gold Rush


Gloriosa Daisy

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.455.190


(='Balrudosh') Gloriosa Daisy hybrids are short-lived perennials, sometimes treated as annuals. Often these will survive a few winters, or at least self seed. This colourful selection features large, fluffy, double, gold flower heads surrounging a brown cone centre. Repeat bloomer. An outstanding cut flower. Removing faded blossoms regularly will greatly increase the flowering time. Seed heads have good winter interest, and can be used in dried arrangements. Fairly drought tolerant, once established. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
