Buy Rudbeckia fulgida var. 'sulliventii Goldsturm' : Large golden-yellow flowerheads

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, preferably heavy but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A breakthrough in breeding has resulted in this wonderful new plant, which will start to flower up to 2 months earlier than its parent R. Goldsturm. It has only been on the American market (where it was first discovered by a grower in Plaquemine, Louisiana) for a couple of years, and this year (2011) it is making its debut throughout Europe. We have managed to secure some of the first plants to reach our shores, so naturally we are quite excited about it all. The most intriguing thing about this new variant is that it is not dependent on the length of the day to induce flowering. Therefore it is possible for it to start flowering in early summer and not finish until mid to late autumn - an impressive feat I'm sure you will agree!

  • Garden care: Lift and divide congested colonies in autumn or spring. Support with ring stakes or brushwood well before the flowers appear.

Great plant


Great cheerful plant. Flowered well in its first year. As described.




Great for adding a pop of late summer and autumn colour


Bright and cheerful splash of golden yellow flowers that look great for months.




Stunning autumn colour


I just love these. I planted them last autumn and now - in mid-September - they are providing just the best splash of late colour. Pretty much all my other flowers are over now, but these came out about a month ago and look as if they will go strong for much longer. Beautiful colour - they bring me much happiness!




Gorgeous flowers


Arrived quickly, very well packaged. Flourished after planting and flowered first year. Gorgeous long lasting flowers which really brightened up the garden. Hoping they come back as strong this year.

Sunshine in a pot


These look great in my mixed grass border and added a pop of colour in the first year but will spread and add waves of colour. Very pleased.

Provided mid to late summer colour. Really stunning and flowed through to December.




Bright and brilliant


I was surprised and delighted how quickly these established in the garden of a new build house. I'd not expected such a great display in the first year but they provided great colour and fun.

I bought these last year and they have been a great success in my garden. I have now left the flowers to die off on the plant and hopefully look good as seed heads over winter. When or how should i cut them back? Have i done the right thing?


Hello, I tend to leave mine uncut as they do look nice in winter - then cut them back to just above ground level when they start to look too tatty.


hello plant doctor, Question for my cutting garden. I have a patch full of tulip bulbs which will flower in april. Once these are over, I would like to have another flower to cut for late summer. So that I would have a succession of flowers. Which combination would work with tulips? many thanks


Hello there It depends on the space you have but I have attached a few links below to later flowering plants suitable for cutting.
