Rudbeckia hirta ‘Maya’

Short-Lived Perennial
Height: 12"
Light: Sun-Part-Shade
Flowering Time: Mid-Summer-Fall
Zone 5

Gloriosa Daisy hybrids are short-lived perennials, sometimes treated as annuals. Often these will survive a few winters, or at least self seed. This compact strain features fluffy double flowers of golden yellow, with a kiss of green in the centre — almost like a Zinnia in appearance. An outstanding cut flower. Removing faded blossoms regularly will greatly increase the flowering time. Seed heads have good winter interest, and can be used in dried arrangements. Fairly drought tolerant, once established. Wonderful in mixed containers. Attracts buterflies.
