Rudbeckia hirta 'Prairie Sun'

line4.gif (1411 bytes)

Flower Award Winner

This robust rudbeckia has distinctive blooms. The light green central cone blends beautifully with the golden-yellow petals, which are tipped primrose yellow. The 5-inch blooms on branching plants that mature at about 3 feet tall make a strong statement in any full-sun garden. Easy to grow and maintain, 'Prairie Sun' is a memorable plant in any perennial, annual or cut flower garden. Flower stems are sufficiently long for quality cut flowers. 'Prairie Sun' plants become a forceful focal point in any large container.
