Rudbeckias offer beautiful late summer colour to any outdoor space. One of the best summer flowering perennials, they will bloom a palette of yellows and oranges from June and July to late autumn, often still in flower as late as October.

These beautiful flowers are a great addition to a modern garden and will look larger than life at the back of the border. Growing hardy, Rudbeckia is a great way to attract butterflies and bees to a UK garden and also make a fantastic cut flower for a bouquet in the home.

Performing best in moist, well draining soil, with full sun or semi-shade, these plants vary in height from 50cm to two metres dependent upon variety. Being herbaceous perennials, they will die down in the autumn and return in the spring.

Find Rudbeckias across both the Growing Nursery and the Garden Centre here at Beetham Nurseries.
