About the Rudbeckia
Commonly known as the coneflower, Rudbeckia have daisy-like flowers that provide a mass of brightly coloured flowers in late summer. The varieties we sell here at Thompson's Garden Centre are perennial, which means during the Winter they will die back, with new shoots emerging next Spring. They are generally know as a low maintenance plant, have a long flowering season and are good for attracting wildlife to your garden.
A compact plant that generally grows to a height of around 60cm-100cm, so will look great behind more lower growing plants at the front of your border. Rudbeckia also go well in a prairie, or cottage style garden, so plant with grasses and similar perennials. Make sure you plant in a Sunny spot, or partially shaded area of your garden to get the best flowering results.
