Rudbeckia 'Little Goldstar'
Common Name: Black-Eyed Susan Destined to become the new industry standard, this new Jelitto introduction is a terrific improvement over ‘Goldsturm’. While ‘Goldsturm’ can stand waist-high in bloom with tall, wispy flowering stems, ‘Little Goldstar’ is a much more compact, proportional plant. Standing just knee high, this plant forms a bushy, short clump of rich green foliage covered with a dome of closely spaced, starburst-shaped, 2-2.5”, golden yellow blossoms held just above the foliage. Very well-branched scapes carry loads of flowers from midsummer through early fall. Over 80 flowers have been counted on a single plant, making this selection more floriferous than 'Goldsturm'. This plant looks fantastic in containers at retail and in the garden. It coordinates perfectly with fall potted mums and asters.
