Cherry Brandy

Rudbeckia Cherry Brandy stands out with its deep, burgundy red blooms and chocolate brown centers. This is an easy to grow plant that will even perform well in poor soils. Expect blooms throughout the summer and leave the seed heads for the wildlife to enjoy.

Plants will last a few seasons but readily self-seed in the garden so that you have this beauty for years to come. Flowers measure 3-4 inches across and make a lovely cut flower.
