Rudbeckia Fulgida

See it on the Herbaceous borders

Sullivant's Coneflower is a native of the eastern half of Illinois, USA.  'Goldsturm' was introduced by the German nurseryman Karl Foerster (1874-1970) in 1937 after being spotted by his employee Heinrich Hagemann at a botanic garden in Czechoslovakia.

A superb low maintenance herbaceous perennial with a long flowering period. It requires no staking just cutting down in early spring. 

The flowers will attract various pollinating insects such as bees and butterflies and the seed heads are a favourite food of finches in winter.
