Description / Rudbeckia 'Little Goldstar'

Goldsturm Strain has been the standard of excellence in the Rudbeckia family for so long that it seems incredible to say that another variety could be superior, but that's what we've got with nifty 'Little Goldstar.' This ultra-compact Black-eyed Susan offers more blooms on a much tighter habit -- so petite it can be grown easily in containers, as well as in the sunny garden!

Just 14 to 16 inches high and wide, 'Little Goldstar' nonetheless sets big 2- to 2½-inch blooms on strong stems above dark green foliage. Set with long, slender golden petals around a prominent dark brown cone, these flowers are great for fresh or dried bouquets, and act as a magnet for all neighborhood butterflies and bees in summer. (In autumn, after the petals drop, the seeds in the cone dry out, creating a feast for songbirds, so be sure to leave the last blooms on the plant until they've been picked clean!)

The flowers begin in midsummer in most climates, and continue well into fall. They are so brilliantly colored that they'll catch your eye from afar, simply glowing in the sunshine. And 'Little Goldstar' has none of the waist-high mass of foliage that Goldsturm brings -- it's a rounded dome of gleaming gold that barely reaches your knee!

A fully blooming 'Little Goldstar' plant will sport up to 80 flowers -- incredible for a plant twice its size, and more than Goldsturm! Yet this newcomer is just as easy as full-size Rudbeckia cultivars to grow, thriving in well-drained soil of just about any fertility, unfazed by heat, humidity, cold, drought, and most other stresses. Pamper it the first year to get it established, then watch it take off in your garden!

'Little Goldstar' pairs with all the summer bloomers, making a great foreground planting to tall Echinacea, leggy Sedum, and leafy Shasta Daisies. It also pairs well with autumn Mums (try it with new 'Matchsticks' for an incredibly bright show!) and Asters. And it's a container joy, so dot the porch steps, patio railing, and other choice spots with this dollop of pure sunshine! Zones 4-10.
