Rudbeckia Saffron grows to around 80cm tall, with chunky foliage which lends itself well to ‘Cut Flowers.’
It is of daisy like appearance with yellow long thin petals with a lime centre which mixes well with ‘Molucella laevis‘ in a vase. The style of swathes of the plant is no more evident than at Trentham Gardens or beautiful Wisley.
Very attractive to insects especially butterflies and flowers for a long period.
