Cultivar Notes - 'Dumbo's Ears'
Great Rudbeckia Dumbo's Ears. Incredible wildflower. Tall and bold. Huge basal leaves of powder blue with giant stalks rise straight up bearing deep golden coneflowers. The central cones of Rudbeckia Maxima are 4-6" tall making it a real conversation piece.
Genus Notes - Rudbeckia
This genus of North American natives are rugged perennials that thrive in a wide range of soils; all they demand is lots of sun. Black-eyed Susan is very easy to naturalize. All have yellow daisy-like flowers with dark cone-shaped center. Excellent for mass color display in the sunny border. A landscaper's and gardener's favorite for mid- to late summer color.
Species Notes - Rudbeckia maxima
Rudbeckia Maxima are also commonly called cabbage leaf coneflower in reference to the basal foliage. Excellent addition to naturalized areas, wildflower meadows, prairies, cottage gardens, and borders. Let flower stocks remain after bloom to attract goldfinches-they love the seed.
