Rudbeckia Little Goldstar Description

One of our TOP 3 New Plants! Little Goldstar Black-Eyed Susan Rudbeckia is a new and ultra-compact Rudbeckia for the perennial garden.

Little Goldstar grows to only HALF as tall as her best-selling sister, Rudbeckia Goldsturm. Little Goldstar reaches only 14-16" tall but it has the same flower power of her taller relative.

With its attractive compact habit, you'll find multiple uses for small spaces, containers and so much more! 

Black Eyed Susans are a popular sun to part shade perennial. Once established, they welcome the summer heat with grace. Looking perky at only 14 inches tall, Little Goldstar Rudbeckia will add a pop of color late in the season when color is needed the most. 

Long blooming, they make superb companions to fragrant Coneflowers, long-blooming KnockOut Roses & Drought Proof Sedums

Rugged green foliage and sturdy stems give way to hundreds of cheery, black-eyed,  2 1/2" golden-yellow daisies that persist for weeks beginning in mid-summer, and lasting well into early fall.

Plant in well drained soil in full sun to part shade, and enjoy this dwarf classic for years to come!

My recent order of plants was received yesterday, and I am thrilled with the quality. Thank you! The plants were packed so expertly that even though the delivery person didn't observe the 'UP notice on the boxes, the plants were still intact and in great shape. It was with great pleasure that I unpacked the plants and admired each one yesterday. I certainly would recommend your company to others. Thank you for your efficiency and for the wonderful plants! I'll be back for more!
