Rudbeckia, Tiger Eye Hybrid

Short Description

More blooms than we have ever seen on a single specimen.

Full Description

This first F1 hybrid Rudbeckia boasts more blooms than we have ever seen on a single specimen. Sturdy plants produce loads of branches, tightly lined with deep green leaves and topped with petal-packed 3" blossoms in rich golden yellow. A significant improvement over other Rudbeckias in susceptibility to powdery mildew means the non-stop show lasts even longer in the garden bed. Try a large drift for an unbelievable mass of pure color.

How to Sow and Plant

Rudbeckia may be grown from seed sown early indoors or planted as a potted plant.

Sowing Seed Indoors:

  • Sow indoors 10 weeks before last spring frost using a seed starting kit
  • Sow seeds ¼ inch deep in seed-starting formula
  • Keep the soil moist at 70-75 degrees F
  • Seedlings emerge in approximately 21 days
  • As soon as seedlings emerge, provide plenty of light on a sunny windowsill or grow seedlings 3-4 inches beneath fluorescent plant lights turned on 16 hours per day, off for 8 hours at night. Raise the lights as the plants grow taller. Incandescent bulbs will not work for this process because they will get too hot. Most plants require a dark period to grow, do not leave lights on for 24 hours.
  • Seedlings do not need much fertilizer, feed when they are 3-4 weeks old using a starter solution (half strength of a complete indoor houseplant food) according to manufacturer’s directions.
  • If you are growing in small cells, you may need to transplant the seedlings to 3 or 4 inch pots when seedlings have at least 2 pairs of true leaves before transplanting to the garden so they have enough room to develop strong roots.
  • Before planting in the garden, seedling plants need to be “hardened off”. Accustom young plants to outdoor conditions by moving them to a sheltered place outside for a week. Be sure to protect them from wind and hot sun at first. If frost threatens at night, cover or bring containers indoors, then take them out again in the morning. This hardening off process toughens the plant’s cell structure and reduces transplant shock and scalding.

Sowing Directly in the Garden:

  • In mild climates, sow seeds outdoors at any time of the year.
  • Remove weeds and work organic matter into the top 6-8 inches of soil; then level and smooth.
  • Sow seeds evenly and cover with ¼ inches of fine soil.
  • Firm the soil lightly and keep it evenly moist.
  • Seedlings will emerge in about 21 days.

Planting in the Garden:

  • Select a location in full sun with good rich moist organic soil.
  • Prepare the bed by turning the soil under to a depth of 6-12, inches removing any debris, and lightly raking as level as possible.
  • The addition of organic matter (leaf mold, compost, well-rotted manure) benefits all gardens and is essential in recently constructed neighborhoods.
  • Plant on a cloudy day or in late afternoon to reduce transplant shock.
  • Dig a hole for each plant large enough to amply accommodate the root ball.
  • Unpot the plant and gently loosen the root ball with your hands to encourage good root growth.
  • Place the top of the root ball even with the level of the surrounding soil. Fill with soil to the top of the root ball. Press soil down firmly with your hand.
  • Use the plant tag as a location marker.
  • Thoroughly water and apply a light mulch layer on top of the soil (1-2 inches) to conserve water and reduce weeds.
  • Keep weeds under control during the growing season. Weeds compete with plants for water, space and nutrients, so control them by either cultivating often or use a mulch to prevent their germination.
  • Mulches also help retain soil moisture and maintain even soil temperatures. For annuals an organic mulch of shredded leaves lends a natural look to the bed and will improve the soil as it breaks down in time. Always keep mulches off a plant’s stems to prevent possible rot.
  • After new growth appears, a light fertilizer may be applied. Keep granular fertilizers away from the plant crown and foliage to avoid burn injury. Use low rates of a slow release fertilizer as higher rates may encourage root rots. Do not over fertilize as gaillardias prefer poor, sandy soils.
  • Monitor for pests and diseases. Check with your local Cooperative Extension Service for pest controls recommended for your area.
  • Deadhead plants for continuous bloom.
  • Try planting rudbeckia in masses for a striking landscape feature.
  • Rudbeckia makes an excellent, long lasting cut flower. Pick when flowers are fully open.
  • Plants are great for a pollinator garden.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They produce and then some! Planted these Tiger Eyes in three different locations and they not only thrived, but made a season long statement. Great color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yellow masses of blooms I bought one last year. This year I bought about 10. They bloom without deadheading for 3 solid months!....I finally had to thin about 30% of flowers ---there were just too many....amazing!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Wonderful, Beautiful Plant I planted this in my flower bed about a month ago and it is in full bloom. The plant is nice and compact with loads of blooms and has handled the weather extremes without a problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tiger Eye a Solid Bloomer I started these from seed, in the house, and attained a fairly good germination rate (it would have been better under lights). Nevertheless, ended up with 36 plants from two 25-seed packets. Used the jiffy-start peat pellets to get them going, then in early April moved them out to my own portable greenhouse here in NW Ohio. These have been strong plants so far; they are nice, compact plants that turn into a solid mound of color after they've begun to bloom, and either fill a pot nicely or form a nice short hedge after they fill out. They've worked well in the ground and in pots, and transfer well from pots to the ground. They've been very resistant to heavy rains and dry periods, though they will begin to wilt in the pot if you forget them for too long. My only question now is how long they last...if they last through the season and avoid powdery mildew long enough, this one will earn five leaves in my book, and a permanent place in my garden!
