Rudbeckia Autumn Sun

Hybrid Coneflower

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.455.400

(='Herbstsonne') An outstanding hybrid selection, this plant forms a tall, monstrous clump that looms perfectly at the back of a sunny border. Huge daisy flowers appear in summer, with chrome-yellow petals drooping gracefully from a long greenish central cone. Although usually self-supporting, this may require staking in especially rich garden soils. Excellent for cutting. Clumps may be easily divided in early spring. Powdery mildew will be less of a problem is plants are grown in moist soil. Flowers are attractive to butterflies.
