Rudbeckia Gold Fountain

Hybrid Coneflower

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.455.300

(='Goldquelle') An outstanding hybrid selection, similar to the older Golden Glow ('Hortensia'), but more compact and much less spreading. This forms an upright mound of bright-green leaves, bearing fluffy chrome-yellow double daisy flowers from mid-summer on. 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.
