PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).
|Rudbeckia occidentalis 'Green Wizard'|
|Cone flower 'Green Wizard'|
|A wonderful cut flower, fresh or dried, this unusual hardy rudbeckia has its origins in Western USA. From late-spring and well into summer it produces elongated, russet-brown cones above a circle of green bracts on tall, strong stems bearing dark green leaves. Much recommended!|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Sow indoors. Sow under glass on the surface of moist, well-drained seed compost, covering with a bare sprinkling of fine vermiculite. Soil should be moist but not waterlogged Germination usually takes 15-21 days but can be erratic, taking up to 4 months. When large enough to handle, transplant into 9cm pots. Plant out when all danger of frost has passed.|
