BEST TO START EARLY INDOORS

In spring, about 6 weeks before last expected frost date, sow seeds 1 inch apart in a containers of seed starting mix. Cover very lightly with mix, keep warm and moist, and provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant out. Feed every 2 weeks with half strength fertilizer. Once seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant 2 to 3 inches apart into deeper containers or individual pots so root systems have room to develop. When plants are 3 to 4 inches tall, gradually acclimate to outdoor conditions. Plant out in the garden in full sun in well-drained, good soil 12 to 18 inches apart. Protect seedlings from slugs and snails while plants are young.


GROWING NOTES

These sturdy tetraploid Rudbeckias are easy to grow, naturalize well and require little maintenance other than removing faded flowers for longest bloom. Once established, they can handle a wide range of weather conditions and will bloom stronger each season. Plants send up long stems of 3 to 4 inch daisy-shaped blossoms in an array of warm colors and bicolors beginning at midsummer.
