Dwarf Black-Eyed Susan

Rudbeckia fulgida var. sullivantii 'Little Goldstar' PP22,397

Considerably shorter with better branching, more floriferous than the standard 'Goldsturm'.

This introduction from Jelitto Seeds is thought to be an improvement over ?Goldsturm?, an industry favourite for years. It is much more proportional and compact, standing just knee-high. It offers more blooms on a tighter habit and is excellent for containers as well as the sunny border. Loads of yellow daisy-like flowers surrounding a prominent brown cone that in winter, provide a healthy snack for birds. Flowers are great for fresh or dried floral bouquets and are very attractive to butterflies and bees in the summer. Pairs well with all summer bloomers. USPP#22397: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
