Product Description

A simply fantastic autumn flowering perennial that will light up your garden for years to come perfect for adding warm, end of season colour to your borders.

Also known as Black-Eyed-Susan, Rudbeckia fulgida 'Goldsturm' is a neat daisy that erupts into bloom from July to October adding warm, end of season colour to your borders. Producing masses of uniform, golden-yellow flowers, each with a rich brown centre that will light up the garden like sunshine. They are a compact form of the garden coneflower, these 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.

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.

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, for stunning displays for many years to come, and it's also recommended by the RHS as a 'Plant for Pollinators', with flowers that are a favourite with butterflies and bees.

Totally hardy, even in the harshest winters where it will die back underground, '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.

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.

Supplied as 3 x established plants in 9cm pots, ready to pot on or plant out.

Care Guide

Planting Advice:

  • For best results grow in moist, fertile soil that drains well, or in pots in good quality compost.
  • Position in full sun or partial shade.
  • If planting out, prepare the soil in advance by digging over and removing any weeds.
  • Incorporate some well-rotted manure to enrich the soil if necessary.
  • Knock the plant from its container and look at the roots - if they are circling around the compost, it is best to tease them out. To do this, push your fingers into the root ball along the bottom edge and pull. Do this in a couple of places. This should encourage the roots to spread into the surrounding soil.
  • Next use a trowel or spade to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the root ball - the aim is to bury just the roots, leaving the bases of the stems (when in growth in summer) or the shoots (in spring) above ground.
  • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas.
  • Water in well to settle the soil and prevent it drying out.

Aftercare Advice:

  • Keep plants well-watered. Lift and divide congested clumps in autumn or spring.
  • Remove faded flowers to encourage further blooms.

Pruning Advice:

  • Cut back immediately after flowering and a second flush of blooms may follow in the autumn.
