Bushy and reliable, Rudbeckia hirta 'Marmalade' is a short-lived perennial, usually grown as an annual, boasting large and long-lasting, daisylike flowers, up to 5 in. wide (12 cm) - one of the largest blooms among Rudbeckia. The blossoms are adorned with bright, golden-orange rays surrounding a dark chocolate center disk. Enjoying a fairly extended blooming season, from early summer to early fall, this Black-Eyed Susan puts on a spectacular show in the garden when other plants are starting to fade. It will bloom the first year from seed and will usually remain in the garden through self-seeding.

Growing: Water seedlings regularly until they become established. This plant grows very quickly and needs little care. Though it grows well in fairly dry soil, it performs best with occasional watering in dry weather. This plant usually begins blooming in its second year of growth. Mature plants tolerate heat and drought well, as well as tolerating clay or rocky soils. Deadhead for the longest blooming period. Mature plants can be divided. This plant attracts butterflies, and may self-seed.
Grows in upright clumps up to 18-24 in. tall and wide (45-60cm). May survive up to a few seasons but will self seed and remain in the garden.

Thrives in full sun in <strong>average, medium moisture, well-drained soils. rought tolerant once established. Ridiculously easy to grow and largely trouble free, this rudbeckia is a great candidate for mixed borders, cutting gardens, or as an accent plant when planted in mass.

Deer resistant, the flowers are attractive to pollinating insects, butterflies and birds.

Remove and discard spent flowers to encourage extended blooming and prevent unwanted seedlings next season. Easily propagated by seed.

All multiple orders of the same seed are put in the same bag. For example if you order 500 beefsteak tomato seeds x 3 then 1500 seeds will be put in the same bag. We do not send out 3 individual bags with 500 in each. This goes for all seeds unless they are listings of different seeds.
