Rudbeckia fulgida 'Little Goldstar'

Black-eyed Susan

A true dwarf, Rudbeckia 'Little Goldstar' forms a bushy, short clump of rich green foliage covered with starburst-shaped golden yellow blossoms with dark centers. Standing only 16 inches high compared to taller, waist-high varieties. 'Little Goldstar' is very well branched and floriferous, excellent for mass color display in the sunny border. Consider leaving the seed heads over winter for songbirds. Lovely in containers as well. A must-have for the front of the garden and for attracting butterflies!
