Rudbeckia Sahara seeds - Warm tones autumn shades of burnt caramel, copper and mustard with soft velvet middles (like a dogs nose!).
Approx 20 Seeds
Lets talk about them
Rudbeckia is the most perfect autumn palette. It's a tough reliable plant that starts flowering just as those summer days begin to shorten and those cool nights creep in. I love the velvet middle too - it reminds me of sweet dogs noses.
How to make these beauties grow
Sow: Autumn for overwintering, or mid spring 6-8 weeks before the last frost.
How: Surface sow and cover lightly. If germination does not occur cold stratify (place in the fridge for 2-4 weeks). If autumn sown, allow mother nature to cold stratify for you.
Days to Maturity: 100 days
Where: Full Sun
Pick: When 3/4 of the flowers are open. To get the required stem length you may need to sacrifice the smaller side buds.
Notes From The Garden
Rudbeckia is in the same family as Echinacea - you can treat Rudbeckia as a perennial.
Staking maybe required.
