HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Direct sow in late fall, pressing into the surface of the soil since this plant needs light to germinate. For spring planting, mix the seeds with moist sand and store in the refrigerator for 30 days before planting. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination, which usually takes 2-3 weeks. The seeds can also be started indoors 6-8 weeks before planting in spring. Keep seedlings lightly moist, and transplant them as soon as they have developed several leaves.

Growing: Water seedlings regularly until they become established. This plant grows very quickly and needs little care, though it grows best in moist soil. Mature plants tolerate heat but not drought. Deadhead for the longest blooming period. Mature plants can be divided. This plant attracts butterflies, and may self-seed.

Harvesting: For cut flowers, choose stems with flowers that have just opened. Strip the foliage that will fall below the water level, and place in water immediately.

Seed Saving: After the flower petals fall from the head, the center cone will begin to develop seed. Remove the seed heads as soon as the stem beneath the cone begins to turn dry and brown. Spread the seed heads out to dry away from direct sunlight, then separate the small seeds from the stems by rubbing them lightly. Store the cleaned seed in a dry, cool place.

Wild Golden Glow

Follow up on my previous review. I jumped the gun. A few more weeks into the season this plant bombarded the flower bed with hundreds of its small yello blooms. You could never count them. The sheer numbers overcome any prblem you might have with the bloom size Wish I could control the heighth a bit, as mine grew to 8 or 9 feet tall climbing above the gutters. Gave severalk plants to neighbors and thney all transplanted well though already 6 feet tall. Glad I stuck with them an extra few weeks...well worth it.

Cut Leaf Coneflower

Planted seeds and got greeerny but no flowers first blooming season. Grew like wildfire second year reaching from 4 to over 6 feet tall. Spreads like crazy but can be controlled. Interesting greenery but disappointing flowers. Flowers came second year in mid-June--zone 7B. They are TINY. They are numerous but are in direct contrast to the large size of the plant. Easy peasy to grow. If you want color don't pick this. If you appreciate interesting leaves and vigorous growth, go for it. The photo on the seed packet makes it look like nice large flowers. Not gonna happen.

DESCRIPTION

IN-STOCK ORDERS SHIP THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY VIA THE US POST OFFICE.

Also known as "Green-headed Coneflower," this species is distinctive because of the attractive green centers and delicately spaced petals. The genus name “Rudbeckia” honors a family of renowned scientists and professors, the Rudbecks of Sweden, who taught Carl Linnaeus at the University of Uppsula. The species name “amplexicaulis” means “stem-clasping,” in reference to the growth of the leaves.
