Coneflower 'F1 Tiger Eye' Overview
Rudbeckia hirta 'F1 Tiger Eye' is a compact, annual cultivar that has been developed for garden use. It has various attractive characteristics including quick and uniform development, good establishment after transplantation and a good branching habit. Flowers are large and golden-orange to yellow in colour, with brown centres, they are around 10cm wide and semi-double in structure. Flowering is abundant during the summer and attracts useful pollinating insects such as bees and butterflies. Typically grows to around 60cm high and around 50cm wide. This plant is an F1 hybrid, which stands for filial 1 in genetics, meaning the first generation. F1 plants have been selectively bred through the cross-pollination of two different parent plants with desirable characteristics like interesting flower colours or sweet fruit. The resultant first generation (F1) is genetically unique, vigorous, stable and uniform in appearance, with characteristics from both parents. Gregor Mendel and his experiments with peas in the 1850s are the first documented F1 hybrids and his work gave rise to the scientific field of genetics.
