Named by Linnaeus in honor of his teacher Olaf Rudbeck, this North American genus includes 25 to 30 species, many of them famous summer and late season bloomers. These easily grown selections promise to brighten borders and naturalized meadows plus make dandy additions to bouquets. Offering late fall and winter interest, they combine well with Asters, Eupatoriums and grasses.
Languid petals in lemon yellow shades lazily encircle prominent beehivelike, chartreuse cones during the idle days of summer. With rough surfaces and fuzzy undersides, the broad and deeply clefted green leaves attire sturdy clumping stems in an airy, opposite fashion. This Rudbeckia makes a sunny neighbor for Aster asperulus above our stone wall.
Size: 3' 0" – 4' 0" high x 2' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
