Rudbeckia hirta Cherry Brandy Rudbeckia hirta Cherry Brandy

This big blooming beauty produces an endless supply of rich ruby-mahogany, 3-4”, long-lasting flowers perfect for bouquets from early Summer straight into Fall! Grown from seed, the flower color may be variable - ranging from burgundy-kissed chocolate to brilliant raspberry red – all are gorgeous! Easy to grow, tolerant of humidity and an excellent food source for bees, butterflies, and wee seed-loving birdies – it makes a great, low-maintenance, showy addition to any garden. Reseeds reliably for future freebies. Abides clay, poor soil, and drought, but definitely looks its best with regular water and rich soil. 2’ tall by 1’ wide.
