Rudbeckia triloba ‘Prairie Glow’ (Brown-Eyed Susan) [20 Seeds]

$3.95

Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-starters only, because they may require some patience and experimentation. 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 chilling period and then germinate when conditions are right in spring.

If you sow after January, set the pot in a plastic bag in your refrigerator for about 2 months before moving it to a warm, bright place for germination. (Remove the bag if the pot will be exposed to any direct sun.)

It is possible that these seeds could germinate 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 refrigerator-chilling approach above before moving them back to warmth and light.

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

Description

With their bold, bright, daisy-form flowers, rudbeckias are so wonderful for summer color. ‘Prairie Glow’, a strain of our native brown-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia triloba), offers something different than the usual solid golden yellow, with varying amounts of red to orange in the dark-centered blooms. The bushy plants are in the range of 3 to 5 feet tall and flower from midsummer into fall. ‘Prairie Glow’ can bloom the same year you start it from seed, or it can act like a biennial, with flowers the second year from a summer sowing. The plants may even last an additional year or two after that. If you let the seeds form on the plant, it is likely to self-sow from the seeds the bids miss, so you can have an essentially perennial patch from just one sowing. Full sun to light shade. Annual, biennial, or even a short-lived perennial; Zones 4 to 8.

Collected in October 2020. At least 20 seeds.
