Rudbekia Hirta 'autumn colors '
Guess what followed me home from the garden center today? The 2003 Fleuroselect quality award gloriosa daisy 'autumn colors ' grows to 2 ' only, and has such beautiful colors with blossoms 5" across . It blooms from July to frost . Of course I just had to have one. Or two. Maybe two in each flower bed.
I was suspicious that it was listed as a perennial when I found it in the annual department. " Half-hardy " came the answer to my question, " but it seeds itself rather well even if it doesn't come back next year. " Alright then !
I'm a sucker for self sowing flowers.
