Coneflower 'Prairie Sun' Overview
Rudbeckia hirta 'Prairie Sun' is an erect biennial that is better grown as an annual due to its intolerance of cold, wet winters. This cultivar typically grows to between 60-80cm tall, spreading up to 50cm wide. It produces bristly foliage and classic golden-yellow daisy-like flowers with green centres. These have a golden-orange ring extending to around half the petal length and are yellow at the tips. Flowers are borne over a long period of time, from summer through to autumn, and are attractive to pollinating insects such as bees and butterflies.
