Rudbeckia moreno

Discovered via Pinterest User, Rachel Ottenberg

Lovely dark and striking colors, along with double-petaled blooms in this Rudbeckia.

Wonderful, free flowering dwarf Gloriosa Daisy with deep chocolate colored petals that radiate to bronze to orange to yellow at their tips. Rudbeckia Moreno has a very compact (12″) branching habit producing an abundance of flowers. Pronounced center cone adds to the beauty of this flower. In fall and winter, finches and chickadees adore the ripened seed heads. Combines well with Perovskia (Russian Sage).Bluestone Perennials
