Botanical Interests "Triloba" Rudbeckia Seeds

Grown as an annual. (Actually a short - lived perennial in USDA Zones 4-9. May come back the following year from roots or reseeding, but not reliably perennial.) Blooms summer to early fall. 3'-6' tall. Masses of petite yellow daisy-like flowers with chocolate-brown button centers. Rudbeckia triloba has smaller flowers than other Rudbeckias, but they occur in a much greater mass - The plants are completely covered with petite yellow daisies with chocolate-colored eyes. The flowers are so profuse that, in the Undaunted Gardener, garden writer, Lauren Springer Ogden, says, \The sheer profusion reminded me of fairy tales in which a person down on his or her luck is suddenly showered by thousands of gold coins from the sky." A Native American wildflower and 1997 Georgia Gold Medal Winner, it is also called Brown Eyed Susan. You are missing out if you don't have this butterfly magnet in your yard!

When to plant outside: Sow in early spring, 3 to 4 weeks before average last frost. Or, plant as late as 2 months before first fall frost.

When to start inside: Sow 6 weeks before average last spring frost. (Starting inside is recommended to get Rudbeckia to bloom the first year.)

Special Germination Instructions: Perennial Rudbeckias require stratification for best results (a simple moist/cold period to mimic winter conditions). The easiest method is to sow the seeds into moistened soil in a sealed plastic bag and place in the refrigerator or freezer for2-3 weeks (temperature range of 25 to 40 degrees). Then, sow inside or outside as desired.
