Beautiful, cherry red petals surround a dark chocolate center on the world's first red flowered Rudbeckia! Blooms continuously, throughout summer; will bloom more profusely with regular deadheading. A wonderful easy-care addition to a sunny bed or border. In optimum conditions, may naturalize in the garden by self-seeding. An herbaceous perennial.
