Gloriosa Daisy

Rudbeckia hirta 'Cherry Brandy'

First red colored rudbeckia; these dark cherry flowers deepen in color towards the blackish center cone.

A total breeding breakthrough, this is a remarkable Gloriosa Daisy selection that literally blooms for months on end. It forms a midsized mound, bearing large daisy heads with cherry-red petals surrounding a black eye. Absolutely fantastic in mixed containers or borders. Though not always reliably perennial, Gloriosa Daisies provide outstanding colour even in the first year so they are well worth growing even as an annual or biennial. Bred and introduced by British seedhouse Thompson and Morgan.
