Rudbeckia - Perennial

American Gold Rush

A new standard amoung Rudbeckias, the American Gold Rush is more tolerant to wet and humid conditions and resistant to Septoria leaf spot. The wonderful full habit of this plant is covered with golden yellow flowers for quite a lengthy period of the summer. The yellow finches will adore you for providing such an amazing treat and you get to enjoy the show.

Rudbeckias prefer full sun conditions but will tolerate a bit of shade as long as the soil is average and of course very well-drained.
