A breathtaking introduction, this beauty is the first ever red variety to the Black Eyed Susan family from seed. Its deep maroon-red petals surround a dark chocolate center and look incredible when combined with other moody plant materials such as ‘Queen Red Lime’ zinnias, “Opopeo’ amaranth and ‘Aramato’ basil.
Details: Plant type: annual Height: 20-24” Amount of sun: full sun Days to maturity: 100-120 days Plant spacing: 12” Approx seeds per packet: 50
How to Grow: Start seed indoors in trays 8-10 weeks before last frost; transplant out after all danger of frost has passed.
Harvesting/Vase Life: Harvest when flowers are beginning to open, and expect a vase life of 7-10 days. Rudbeckias are notorious for making their water murky. To combat this and extend their vase life, add a few drops of bleach to the water.
