Indian Summer -Golden Yellow with dark brown cone. It's an eye-catcher because of its 6-9 inch flower heads on 3' plants. The golden-yellow flowers of 'Indian Summer' are ideal for cutting. Sturdy wind tolerant.
Prairie Sun -Golden Yellow, with green cone.Prairie Sun's eye-popping blooms measure a full 5 inches across. Reaches 3 feet tall and is simply loaded down with flowers over a long summer season, making it a great choice for the back of the border, the cutting garden, a wildflower setting, or a bold accent in the annual bed!
Gloriosa Daisy -Flowers orange, red, yellow. Considered a perennial.
Regular deadheading of the faded flowers will keep the plants in bloom longer. You can let the last flowers of the season remain on the plants to go to seed and feed the birds, but you will also get a good deal of self-seeding.
Care and Maintenance:
Will grow in full sun to part shade, but blooms best in full sun.
Rudbeckia are easy to establish, naturalize well and require little maintenance other than deadheading. Too much fertilizer will result in weak stems.
