Rudbeckia fulgida 'Goldsturm' is a neat daisy which erupts into bloom from July to October adding warm, end of season colour to your borders. Also known as Black-Eyed-Susan, ‘Goldsturm’ produces masses of uniform, golden-yellow flowers, each with a rich brown centre that will light up the garden like sunshine.
A compact form of the garden coneflower, the sunflower-like blooms are carried on branching, upright stems which makes them great for cut flowers as well, so you can bring the colour indoors.
Totally hardy, even in the harshest winters where it will die back underground, Rudbeckia Goldsturm will flower its socks off, getting bigger and better each year and you'll get months of blooms which look fabulous whether in a container or at the front of the flower border.
Growing to just 80cm tall, the toothed, hairy leaves form a compact mound which adequately fills those gaps in borders which appear as the seasons progresses, providing a green backdrop for late spring and summer flowers.
Easy to grow and particularly robust, this delightful rudbeckia is low maintenance too as it won’t need staking and in late winter the stems just need a quick chop back to ground level - or if you want to encourage wildlife leave them on to provide a natural mulch and home for overwintering insects and invertebrates.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence and it will return year after year getting bigger and better for many years to come.
