Notes on Rudbeckia fulgida var. sullivantii 'Goldsturm'

"Knee-high golden yellow daisies with deep-brown middles from August until October - tidy, neat and crisply enduring colour linking summer and autumn"

A lovely health plant


It went into a border to compliment other plants




I would buy this plant again


A very easy plant. Flowers from mid summer through to late autumn. Appears to be happy in full sun or light shade.




A burst of sunshine in September


I planted this in August and wondered if it had died. But it survived a northern winter and started to sprout upwards. By September I had a wonderful display of flowers.

Daisy lover



I would buy thisplant again


Formed part of a yellow/orange/white border. So far looking happy in spite of the heat




17-18 winter may have killed plant


Good plant, still hoping it will show life

My lovely plant is still flourishing after two seasons.


As described, this plant is hardy and healthy.




Strong, healthy plant.


First year of planting, and they are peeping through already!

Joan - you wil flower



Rudbeckia , a great colour infuser !


This took a few months to start flowering but it's only just finished! In the time it didn't flower it grew slow and steady with lots of foliage and buds. I'd definitely buy this for a gift or myself again. My garden has heavy clay yet Rudbeckia just produces abundance of flowers.




Wonderful Long-lasting colour


Great for long-lasting display of vivid colour. Leave the seed heads and there's even winter interest. Mixes well with Hyssop, Helleniums and Ligularias.




Flowers for weeks and weeks


Rudbeckia was included in the Cottage Garden ready made borders we bought. All the border plants flourished beautifully through the summer, but the Rudbeckias were particularly outstanding. They started to flower in late July and just went on.... and on, and there are still a few flowers in good shape in mid October! The best value plants we've ever bought. Crocus' delivery is superb, everything is so well packed to arrive undamaged, and their plants are just so fresh, healthy and well grown. We won't shop anywhere else for our plants now and we really look forward to our orders arriving. Well done Crocus!
