AAS Flower Award Winner
This Rudbeckia hirta contains a blend of sunset colors; yellow, orange, bronze,
mahogany and shades of these colors. The 3 to 4-1/2 inch flowers are double or semi-double
and long lasting as cut flowers. Best when grown in the full sun, 'Cherokee Sunset' plants
are about 24 to 30 inches tall, spreading about a foot. Many plants are self-supporting
and others may need staking. 'Cherokee Sunset' offers gardeners a blend of autumn colors
and late season garden performance. Flowering profusely the first year, 'Cherokee Sunset'
may over-winter in northern gardens.
