Rudbeckia Hotensia/Outhouse Flower

Rudbeckia laciniata 'Hortensia'
Outhouse Flower
Height: 5-7’
Light: Full Sun
Flowering Time: July
Zone: 2-3
Lovingly known as the Outhouse Plant, this old, historical selection of Coneflower is still seen in gardens today. Plants form a tall clump of bright-green leaves, bursting into colour in summer, when loads of fluffy double chrome-yellow daisies appear. Since the habit can be floppy, plan to pinch the growth in June to promote bushiness and reduce the height, or stake to prevent wind damage. A vigorous spreader, this will need to be reduced in size each spring by removing unwanted shoots as they come up. Moist soil will help to prevent powdery mildew. Excellent for cutting.
