Product Description

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.
