Gardeners' Notes:

One of my favorite varieties. Self seeds and easily crosses with other rudbeckias sometimes producing very different and very unique offspring.

Quite a variation of flower shapes and colors. Some are rustic and full and some are lighter and thin.

The flowers are very quilled and come in a mix of colors from burgundy to gold and yellow, making an interesting change of pace to the usual R. hirta varieties.
