Gloriosa Daisy Rudbeckia

Rudbeckia hirta Impervious to the hottest sun and the poorest soils, these workhorses reward even the novice with nonstop flowers from late July until fall frosts.

They enhance the border and can be brought inside as cuts. Transplant or start seeds directly outdoors as soon as the ground can be worked. Space about 1' apart. Annual. ~1,800 seeds/g. Especially attractive to pollinators.
