Rudbeckia (Cutleaf Coneflower) 'herbstsonne' - this is a hybrid cultivar of our native Rudbeckia Nitida. An outstanding selection, this plant forms a very tall, monstrous clump that looms perfectly at the back of a sunny border. Huge daisy flowers appear in summer, with bright-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. This plant blooms endlessly once it gets going in mid summer, especially if you keep it deadheaded. Pollinator magnet. 2 gal
