NATIVE Cheerful and elegant as they sway in the breeze, Goldilocks is a hardy perennial wherever you plant them! We’ve dotted them as a companion plant throughout our orchards, though we’ve seen them thrive in poor soil and drought. A profusion of golden blossoms glows in gardens as well as raised beds and containers with long, strong stems perfect for cutting. Each 2-foot plant blossoms mid-July and remains unrelentingly abundant ’til frost, especially when you harvest their flowers consistently. Harvest as blossoms open for optimum vase life! The more sun your rudbeckia receives, the more they’ll flower.
A tenacious perennial, organic Goldilocks rudbeckia will slowly expand in diameter, blossoming all the more with each year. Rudbeckias are easy to divide (as well as save seed of!) to share with friends!
