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.
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!

More Info, How-To's, Videos and more
Soil: Average, dry to medium, well-drained soil
Light: Tolerates light shade, but best in full sun.
Water: Water regularly until established. Tolerates hot and humid summers and some drought.
Spacing: 1 - 2 ft.
Fertilizing: Go easy on the fertilizer. Too much will result in weak stems and plants. A side dressing of compost should be all they'll need.
Winterizing: You can let the last flowers of the season remain on the plants to go to seed and feed the birds.
Maintenance & Pruning: Deadhead to prolong bloom. Divide when clumps become overcrowded. Rudbeckias don't generally die out in the center and don't require frequent division
