DESCRIPTION
American Gold Rush Black-eyed Susan
Rudbeckia fulgida 'American Gold Rush'

Denser and more disease resistant than 'Goldsturm', this selection is a summer pollinator thriller with masses of deep brown coned, golden rayed daisies. Its narrower, hairier, deep green leaves are a great background for its immense flower show and native birds love the seed from its spent flowers.

 

BENEFITS
  • Exceptionally showy and easy to grow
  • Birds love the profuse seeds from dried blooms
  • Perfect cut flower for decorating indoors
  • A nectar magnet for native pollinators
  • Excellent cut flower, easy to grow and very versatile
  • Perfect for massing for a long summer flower show
