Rudbeckia hirta 'Autumn Colours' 9cm pot
From the same stable as the absolute star performer 'Cappuccino' (pictured) comes this fabulous seed strain. Stunning beauties have huge flowers on strong stems and create a real drawcard wherever you plant them. Beautiful big single flowers to 10cm across in stunning rust and sunset shades, many with complimentary or contrasting central zones. Eye catching colour all summer long, especially if deadheaded regularly. Rudbeckia hirta is best treated as an annual in colder areas, although mine frequently overwinter here in Golden Bay, dying back to ground level then popping up again in spring. Full sun to part shade. Flowering height 50-70cm x 30cm wide. 9cm pot.
