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

This refers to whether a plant is an annual, biennial or perennial. Annuals complete their life cycles in one year; biennials produce foliage the first year and bloom and go to seed the second year; perennials can live for more than two years.
This refers to whether the seed should be sown early indoors and the seedlings transplanted outside later, or if the seed should be sown directly in the garden at the recommended planting time.

A Wonderful, Beautiful PlantI 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.

Tiger Eye a Solid BloomerI 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!
