Rudbeckia ‘Lion Cub’

We think this unique little Rudbeckia will wow you with its cuteness and longevity. Naturally forms a tight mound of emerald green foliage topped by pom pom perfect golden yellow flowers centered with a dark chocolate eye. Each flower is covered with a sunburst of strap thin petals, which do not brown or fade, but develop a contrasting red edge with age. Bloomed June through October, both in the ground and in the greenhouse. Fast and vigorous, a favorite of every visitor. Great commercial sales potential; ideal for summer through fall containers, annual bedding and displays.
