Rudbeckia fulgida var. fulgida (Orange Coneflower) [20 Seeds]

$3.95

Germination Information: I recommend these seeds only for gardeners who have experience with seeds that benefit from or require a chilling period. The easiest approach is to surface-sow (do not cover) the seeds in fall to mid-winter, setting them outdoors in a spot protected from mice so they can get a natural chilling period and then germinate when conditions are right in spring.

If you sow after February, give the pot an artificial chilling period of about 2 months.

It is possible that these seeds could germinate (though perhaps at a lower than optimal rate) if you sow them in warm, moist, bright conditions. But if you try that and no seedlings appear within 3 weeks or so, then try the artificial chilling period.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

Description

If you’re looking to brighten up your fall garden, consider giving this late-flowering form of orange coneflower a try. It starts blooming even later than Rudbeckia fulgida var. deamii, continuing from late August well into October (at least in my southeastern Pennsylvania garden). The plants usually top out at about 30 inches tall, with small but abundant, dark-centered golden flowers that attract butterflies and dark seedheads that supply food for birds. This variety combines beautifully with asters and warm-season ornamental grasses, such as little bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium) and prairie dropseed (Sporobolus heterolepis). Full sun to light shade. Perennial; Zones 4 to 9.

2021-collected seeds sold out. I hope to collect again in early to mid October 2021. At least 20 seeds.
