This special strain of good ol’ R. triloba has a mixture of reds and rusts that are oh-so autumnal and warm. A butterfly MAGNET, this Midwestern native grows 3-6’ tall by 2’ or more wide and is considered a short-lived perennial, though it self-sows modestly. If you don’t know R. triloba, prepare to be impressed! The flowers are small (2” across) but profuse. At peak bloom (late Summer or Fall) an established plant can produce 100’s of flowers, MORE per plant than any other Rudbeckia I can think of. Grown from seed, the shade of red is variable and there are some yellow and yellow-red bicolors in the mix. But we do so love the little surprises you get from growing things from seed! OK with poor soil, heat and more shade than most Rudbeckias. Great cut flower!
