American Gold Rush Showy Coneflower

2023 PPA Perennial of the Year

Full Sun Perennial

Rudbeckia x American Gold Rush (PP28498) has bright, golden-yellow flowers with black centers and arched petals. It is a gorgeous addition to any garden. This compact, upright domed-shaped beauty has narrow 2-inch wide hairy foliage bred for its resistance to Septoria leaf spot. This hybrid shows no signs of the fungus even in wet, humid conditions. Blooming from July to September, with some color up until frost, this cultivar has smaller foliage and shorter height compared to other Rudbeckia varieties. Incredibly easy to grow and pollinators love it. Destined to be the new Rudbeckia staple for gardens and landscapes!
