Rudbeckia hirta Indian Summer is often called the Queen of the Garden Daisies because of its massive 5" to 8" inch flower size! This All-American Selection Winner is a garden bedding favorite that produces single and double petal, yellow flower blooms with dark center eyes, on strong 36" inch stems through the entire season. This tireless workhorse is heat and drought tolerant, deer resistant, freely self seeding and despite its large flower size requires no staking. Ideal for self sustaining perennial garden beds, wildflower meadows and border planting where little care is needed, Indian Summer provides lasting showy color from early spring through fall frost. To increase blooming, deadhead regularly. Also known as Black Eyed Susan or Gloriosa Daisy. An exceptional choice for cut flower and nursery stock growers alike. Packet: 50 seeds.
