It's hard to look away from this electric, bicolored beauty with light green cones and bright orange petals tipped lemon yellow. Plants are much taller than 'Toto,' and 5″ blooms make stunning bouquets. An All-America Selections® winner. Although plants might sometimes survive the winter, this variety is best treated as an annual.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery.

I have several of these in my beds and they come up every year (in Connecticut, zone 6). They are great plants! Highly recommended. Be sure to observe correct spacing when planting them young. They really fill out, even in the first year.
Plant annual Rudbeckias in average to dry garden soil or a well-drained potting mix. They tolerate drought and dry heat, but falter in areas of high humidity. Shorter varieties make excellent container plantings. These varieties may self-sow but resulting plants are not always like the parent plants. It is best to start with new plants each year.
