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.
Rudbeckia subtomentosa ‘Loofahsa Wheaten Gold’ (P-2250)
Named after one of his beloved prize-winning Wheaten terriers, this comely late-summer bloomer was bred by Anthony Brooks, the head gardener at England’s Elton Hall. Countless ample-sized clear yellow blooms with cocoa-colored cones plus slim, widely-spaced pointed petals, which twist and undulate, cast a graceful somewhat ruffled aspect above attractive green foliage on tall stems. Kin to the stalwart Midwestern U.S. native, ‘Loofahsa Wheaten Gold’ acquiesces to dry periods and some shade, while enjoying bedfellows such as Eupatorium ‘Purple Bush’ and Persicaria ‘Fat Domino’ in sunny moderately-moist enclaves.
Size: 4' 0" – 4-1/2' high x 2' 0" wide.
