Rudbeckia, Indian Summer is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Next year, I'm going to plant even more! I bought these with high hopes but had difficultly germinating. It's harder because I live in Alaska. Anyway, my last ditch effort was to plant my very last transplant attempts. I thought by memorial day (transplanted mid may) that they died to. Two weeks later they just sprung to life. Finally by August I had a few blooms. Now by mid August I have tons of blooms. Everyone loves my flowers! They're attracting bees so well I plan on planting these around my pumpkin and watermelon patches next year to influence pollination. I will by these year after year! Beautiful!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Many new Rudbeckia varieties have been introduced to the gardening public in the last few years. Former AAS winner, 'Indian Summer" continues to be a superlative performer. Abundant large blooms are produced on self-supporting, healthy, vigorous, weather-tolerant plants. Treat yourself to a garden gem and plant 'Indian Summer'.
