Rudbeckia hybrid American Gold Rush

2023 Perennial Plant Association Plant of the Year! One of
my best plants! Naturally compact plants reach 22” at the most, with a
rounded habit and heavy bloom starting in late July through September.
golden yellow 3” flowers have arched petals. Foliage is thinner and hairy
giving this plant excellent resistance to Septoria, the fungus that affects
Goldsturm. Full sun, well-drained soil. An All-American Selection!
