(P) Pkt of 50 seeds
Item #51654-PK-P1


Perfect for cutting | Long-blooming and easy to grow in just about any soil

Expect armloads of big bright blooms from this irrepressible duo of black-eyed Susans. Radiant yellow and smoldering deep red with darker marks near the base make an unforgettable combination in the sunny garden or the vase—and with 'Ruby Gold' Rudbeckia, you'll be picking fresh flowers from midsummer 'til frost.

The 'Ruby Gold' Rudbeckia flowers open in hot, sun-soaked conditions, and once this plant is established, it doesn't mind unseasonable levels of heat, humidity, rain, cold, or even drought. Poor soil is no problem, though best blooming will be in enriched garden soil with adequate water. Black-eyed Susan is one of the easiest native wildflowers to grow, and 'Ruby Gold' Rudbeckia is no exception.

This 'Ruby Gold' Rudbeckia plant reaches about 20 to 24 inches high and nearly as wide, with good branching and healthy foliage. More compact than wild rudbeckia, it is a magnet for butterflies and bees in the summer garden, and in autumn the songbirds feast on the seed-filled black centers of every bloom. Its native resistance to pests and diseases keeps 'Ruby Gold' Rudbeckia looking healthy and blooming its best all season.

'Ruby Gold' Rudbeckia is a biennial, hardy in zones 5 through 8. It will bloom the first summer if the seeds are begun early indoors. Pick or deadhead the blooms for even faster rebloom over two long seasons of glory.
