Golden-yellow flowers with black centers bloom from mid-summer to fall. With its refined foliage texture, habit and flowering performance, the judges felt this beauty was one of the very best Rudbeckias they have trialed. A mass planting of Rubeckia American Gold Rush developed by Brent Horvath of Intrinsic Perennial Gardens provides show-stopping later season color. All-American Selections is an independent non-profit organization. After a full season of anonymous trialing by volunteer horticulture professionals, only the top garden performers are given the AAS Winner award for their superior performance.

Rudbeckia General Information

Rudbeckia are upright, clump-forming perennials with deep-yellow, daisy-like flowers with a brown/black center cone. Long-lasting, prolific flowering. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Rudbeckia Plant Care

Prefer moist, fertile well-drained soil. Although drought tolerant, Rudbeckia bloom better with ample moisture. Pinching can produce more compact plants in taller varieties. Allow seeds to fall to assure permanence in the garden. Spent flower heads can be cut back to prevent too many volunteers. Can be divided every 4 years in spring. Spent foliage can be cut back to 6" for a flush of new growth.
