Rudbeckia subtomentosa
‘Henry Eilers’

Towering 4-5’ stems are topped by a loose collection of 2-3” starburst flowers that bloom nonstop Summer thru Fall. A uniquely charming selection with narrow quilled golden petals surrounding a chocolate brown center. An abundant bloomer and ideal for cut flowers! Basal leaves appear in Spring and offer up a subtle but sweet anise fragrance. Flower stems are covered in soft down, making every part of this perennial coneflower a delight. Bees too love the flowers while songbirds will be attracted by the maturing seeds. A great plant for adding a vertical element to any sunny bed and pairs well with Mimulus, Agastache, Achillea or Coreopsis grandiflora for a little pollinator corner. Plant in fertile well-drained soil. Do not overwater. Clean up in Winter or prune to the ground for a fresh start. Deer resistant.
