Organic Prairie Sun Rudbeckia
Perennial | 80 days to harvest | Rudbeckia hirta
NATIVE Butterflies love these brilliant blossoms! Prairie Sun thrives even in poor soil and drought, prolific in gardens as well as raised beds and containers. With long, strong stems perfect for cutting, each 3-foot plant blossoms mid-July reaching her peak by late August, remaining unrelentingly abundant well into autumn, especially if you harvest her flowers consistently.
A tenacious perennial, your rudbeckia will slowly expand her diameter and blossom all the more with each year, easy to divide when you’re ready to share her with friends! Harvest as blossoms open for optimum vase life; full sun grows the most abundant rudbeckia flowers.
At Fruition, we sow most organic rudbeckia seeds in soil blocks indoors 4 weeks before final frost to transplant after final frost with one foot between plants.
