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.
Distinguished from its seed parent by smaller leaves, a compact, shorter stature and superb resistance to leaf spot, this new Intrinsic Perennials introduction is creating quite a stir. The well-groomed dome-like habit sports slender hirsute greenery plus an ebullient showing of copious, ebony-centered bright golden-yellow daisies from summer ’til fall. Enticing plant purveyors, butterflies and songbirds, ‘American Gold Rush’ is a steadfast long-lived perennial for borders, cutting gardens or natural-style plantings. (pp#28,498)
