Cherokee Sunset Rudbeckia

Cherokee Sunset Rudbeckia

Award-winning plant is graced with the hues of a stunning sunset.

With each stem, this rudbeckia generously presents 3–4" daisylike flowers that unfurl in a breathtaking display. Its many blooms transition from yellow-gold to shades of orange, and finally mature into a rich brown to bronze-red, creating a captivating visual journey. The colourful flowers have a special allure for butterflies and other pollinators. Cherokee Sunset is not just a fleeting beauty; it features a months-long bloom period. This plant is a standout choice for borders and a perfect addition to dried or fresh-cut arrangements. Rudbeckia hirta
