Rudbeckia triloba ‘Prairie Glow’

Rudbeckia

Black-Eyed Susan

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.

<i>Rudbeckia triloba</i> ‘Prairie Glow’

Spangled with burgundy, bronze and reddish orange shades, irresistible legions of exuberant long-blooming daisies debut dark chocolate centers and bicolored gold-tipped petals. Large trilobed verdant leaves sprout from ‘Prairie Glow’s base, forming a handsome bushy mass that gives way to upper, narrower leaves and openly branched, erect purple-flowering stems. A denizen of the Great Plains, this summertime show-stopper is not as persistent as other Rudbeckias; it eventually wears out, but easily reseeds.

Blooms July–mid-October

Size: 3' 0" – 4' 0" high x 15" wide.

Hardy to zone 3.
